Matthew 22:28-32. God Of The Living 1 Oct 2023

Mat 22:28 Now at the resurrection,
whose wife among the seven will she be,
since she had been married to them all?'
29 Jesus answered them,
'You are wrong,
because you understand neither the scriptures
nor the power of God.
30 For at the resurrection men and women do not marry;
no, they are like the angels in heaven.
31 And as for the resurrection of the dead,
have you never read what God himself said to you:
32 I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob?
He is God, not of the dead, but of the living.'

How would the 'power of God' and the Scriptures relate to the question asked to Jesus? He is the god of the living. But what about the dead? Would they have no god? Or, would those who have no god, be dead?


Jesus, please be my God.
