Mark 12:20–31

20 Now there were seven brothers. The first took a wife; and dying, he left no offspring. 21 And the second took her, and he died; nor did he leave any offspring. And the third likewise. 22 So the seven had her and left no offspring. Last of all the woman died also. 23 Therefore, in the resurrection, when they rise, whose wife will she be? For all seven had her as wife.”

24 Jesus answered and said to them, Are you not therefore 7mistaken, because you do not know the Scriptures nor the power of God? 25 For when they rise from the dead, they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but mare like angels in heaven. 26 But concerning the dead, that they nrise, have you not read in the book of Moses, in the burning bush passage, how God spoke to him, saying, oI am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob? 27 He is not the God of the dead, but the God of the living. You are therefore greatly 8mistaken.”

Matt. 22:34–40

29 Jesus answered him, The 2first of all the commandments is: qHear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one. 30 And you shall rlove the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ 3This is the first commandment. 31 And the second, like it, is this: sYou shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than tthese.”
