27 Finally, the woman died. 28 Now then, at the resurrection, whose wife will she be of the seven, since all of them were married to her?”

29 Jesus replied, “You are in error because you do not know the Scriptures(A) or the power of God. 30 At the resurrection people will neither marry nor be given in marriage;(B) they will be like the angels in heaven. 31 But about the resurrection of the dead—have you not read what God said to you, 32 ‘I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob’[a]?(C) He is not the God of the dead but of the living.”

33 When the crowds heard this, they were astonished at his teaching.(D)

The Greatest Commandment(E)

34 Hearing that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees,(F) the Pharisees got together. 35 One of them, an expert in the law,(G) tested him with this question: 36 “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”

37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’[b](H) 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’[c](I) 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”(J)
