HOW MANY VIRGINS AWAIT IN HEAVEN?

UNDAILY Episode 152


Then the Sadducees, who say there is no resurrection, came to him with a question. “Teacher,” they said, “Moses wrote for us that if a man’s brother dies and leaves a wife but no children, the man must marry the widow and raise up offspring for his brother. Now there were seven brothers. The first one married and died without leaving any children. The second one married the widow, but he also died, leaving no child. It was the same with the third. In fact, none of the seven left any children. Last of all, the woman died too. At the resurrection whose wife will she be, since the seven were married to her?” Jesus replied, “Are you not in error because you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God? When the dead rise, they will neither marry nor be given in marriage; they will be like the angels in heaven. Now about the dead rising—have you not read in the Book of Moses, in the account of the burning bush, how God said to him, ‘I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob’? He is not the God of the dead, but of the living. You are badly mistaken!”

MARK 12, 18-27 (NIV)

 

The Sadducees, who didn't believe in the resurrection, decided to challenge Jesus by asking Him about a woman who had seven husbands one after the other. Their goal was to show that the idea of resurrection was absurd. However, Jesus gives them an answer that humbles them and opens up an extraordinary perspective on life after death. Jesus says, "Your error stems from not understanding either God's Word or God's power! After the resurrection, people will no longer need marital relationships, for they will function like heavenly angels." The Master's words indicate that the reality after we leave this world is absolutely unlike our earthly life. But what would happen if our disbelief in the resurrection was confronted with Divine law? Jesus shows that a lack of understanding of Scripture, God's power, and faith leads to errors.
