The Sadducees did not believe in the resurrection of the body. Jesus resists being confounded by them. He not only turns the tables of debate on them, but further questions to Jesus serve to reduce these religious naggers to silence.

Relate the stern warning of Jesus about the scribes to the “bewares” of Paul in yesterday’s reading—those “having a form of godliness but denying its power” (2 Tim. 3:5). Resist the sacrilegious behavior of those whose only purpose in speaking about spiritual matters is to exalt themselves, not God.

The Holy Spirit plants the seed of the resurrection in you, dead to sin, but alive in Christ. The pulse of Christ’s love becomes one with the beating of your heart.
