After the chief priests and the scribes finished trying to trap Jesus into making a statement for which they would arrest Him for heresy but Jesus spoke truth to them which took all the steam out of them, the Sudducees also ganged up on him with a question that they thought would certainly trap Him since they didn't believe in the resurrection.(Luke 20:27-33) They even called Him Master, as in Teacher. They gave Him a supposition that said what if a man's married brother died and he also died without children, and his brother makes the brother's wife his own wife and who had children of the brother, what if there were seven children and the first gets married but has no children, and the second brother took her as his wife and died childless, and the third brother took her as his wife, and the fourth and fifth and so on and they left no children and they all died; then eventually the wife died. Their supposition related to religious law which says they are united for eternity. So, they asked Jesus whose husband would be the wife of all the brothers in the resurrection. The Sadducees delighted in trying to trap Jesus, wanting to find Him with no truthful answer because they used the religious laws as the basis of their supposition.
Jesus didn't even hesitate but used the question as a way to teach about the resurrection and My heaven. He told them that people marry in the world, but that in My resurrected heaven there is no marriage. Then He told them a truth, that the resurrected ones will never die any more but they will be spiritual beings similar to the angels; but instead of angels they will be My children, being the children of the resurrection. (Luke 20:34-36)
The lecture about spiritual beings went on and Jesus told the Sadducees that the dead are raised and when Moses said at the burning bush that the Lord is the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob it was to show that life goes on and on and on after the death of the body, alive in heaven.(Luke 20:37) Then He said that I am not the God of the dead, but I am God of the living because life goes on and on and on in eternity with me. Then a few of the scribes who were listening said that Jesus had explained it well. He was definitely too smart for them. (Luke 20:38-39)
Jesus astounded them so much that the Instruction Book says that they asked Him no more questions at all because of the truth of His answers. (Luke 20:39-40) They knew that they could not trap Him any more. He was too wise and insightful for them.
All of the unbelievers, the hypocrites, the Pharisees, the chief priests and the scribes and Sadducees had their chance to trap Jesus into saying something that would give them the authority to arrest Him and punish Him. Certain prophesies had to be fulfilled first before that could happen.
Jesus continued to teach about My kingdom and My righteousness to the people. Every teaching was a chance for Him to teach things that are important to Me and also important to the people because they gave important ways for My children to act while in the earth which would always bring My kingdom into the earth as it is in my Heaven. The teachings always related to My will being done in earth as it is in heaven and by that obedience the windows and doors of My heaven will remain open with no blockages which keep My blessings from My children.
The people who did not believe in the resurrection would hang around and see My Son Jesus when He was resurrection from the dead and walk among them to do miracles and teach again. They believed in the resurrection after His resurrection from the dead and they had an image of spiritual beings from that day forth. (Luke 24:34-40)
I do not desire to reject people who question Me in order to trap Me. At least they are communicating with Me and allowing Me to prove Myself to them with wisdom and knowledge that cannot be found in the earth. Those who hear are set free indeed.
