    Todays Scripture:

  • ?Do you think that this life is all there is, or is death just the beginning?

  • The Resurrection from the DeadThe Gospel of Luke 20:27-40

  • 27 There came to him some Sadducees,

    The Gospel of Luke 20:27-40

    those who deny that there is a resurrec-tion, 28 and they asked him a question.

  • 28 saying, Teacher, Moses wrote for

    The Gospel of Luke 20:27-40

    us that if a mans brother dies, having awife but no children, the man must take the widow and raise up offspring for hisbrother.

  • 29 Now there were seven brothers. The

    The Gospel of Luke 20:27-40

    first took a wife, and died without child-ren. 30 And the second 31 and the thirdtook her, and likewise all seven left no children and died. 33 In the resurrection, therefore, whose wife will the woman be?For the seven had her as wife..

  • 34 And Jesus said to them, The sons of

    The Gospel of Luke 20:27-40

    this age marry and are given in marriage,35 but those who are considered worthy to attain to that age and to the resurrectionfrom the dead neither marry nor are givenin marriage, 36 for they cannot die any-

  • The Gospel of Luke 20:27-40

    more, because they are equal to angels and are sons of God, being sonsof the resurrection.

  • ?Question #1: What does Jesus mean when he says there is no marriage in heaven?

  • The Hebrews View of Time

    This Age The Age to Come

    (marked by sin, selfishness,

    disease, death)

    (marked by life, love righteousness, peace)

  • Key Thought #1

    Marriage and sex are good things because

    they were created by God.

  • Key Thought #2

    Marriage and sex are temporary things designed

    for this age to populate and to fill the earth.

  • Key Thought #3

    Marriage and sex are necessary things due to the

    reality of sin and death in this age.

  • What?!?! No sex in heaven?

    I aint down with that.

  • You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy;

    at your right hand are pleasures evermore.

    ~ Psalm 16:11

  • I think our present outlook might be like that of a small boy who, on being told that

    the sexual act was the highest bodily pleasure should immediately ask

    whether you ate chocolates at the same time. On

    receiving the answer No, he might regard absence of chocolates as the chief

    characteristic of sexuality.

  • In vain would you tell him that the reason why lovers

    in their carnal raptures dont bother about chocolates is that they have something better to think of. The boy knows chocolate: he does not know the positive thing

    that excludes it.

  • We are in the same position. We know the sexual life; we do not

    know, except in glimpses, the other thing which, in Heaven, will leave no

    room for it.

  • If we consider the unblushing promises of

    reward and the staggering nature of the rewards promised in the Gospels, it would seem that our Lord finds our desires, not too strong,

    but too weak.

  • We are half-hearted creatures, fooling about with drink and sex and

    ambition when infinite joy is offered us, like an

    ignorant child who wants to go on making mud pies

    in a slum because he cannot imagine what is meant by the offer of a

    holiday at the sea. We are far too easily pleased.

  • No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has imagined what God has

    prepared for those who love him. ~ The Apostle Paul in 1 Corinthians 2:9 (NLT) ~

  • However great or horrible marriage or sex may have been for you, heaven takes us into a

    dimension where one is called to imagine the unimaginable.

    ~ Tim Lane Heaven: Better Than Sex?

  • Jesus is saying that heaven is far, far better than marriage & sex!

  • ?Question #2: What does Jesus mean when he speaks of those who are considered worthy to attain to that age and to the resurrection of the dead?

  • ?Question #3: What does Jesus mean when he says,they are equal to the angels and are sons of God?

  • 37 But that the dead are raised, even

    The Gospel of Luke 20:27-40

    Moses showed, in the passage about thebush, where he calls the Lord the God ofAbraham and the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob. 38 Now he is not the God of the dead, but of the living, for all live tohim.

  • The Lord cannot bethe God of Abraham,

    Isaac, and Jacob, if they are dead.

  • 39 Then some of the scribes answered,

    The Gospel of Luke 20:27-40

    Teacher, you have spoken well. 40 Forthey no longer dared to ask him any question.

  • Not only is there a heaven, but it is infinitely greater

    than your wildest dreams.

  • Hold on! With all due respect, how

    do I know that Jesus was not

    mistaken on this?

  • Th resurrection is part of the Good news of the Kingdom of God that Jesus

    proclaimed as true and demonstrated as real by his own death and resurrection.

  • ~ CS Lewis, Oxford Professor Lettes to Malcolm

    Joy is the serious business

    of heaven.

  • There was a real railway accident, Aslan said softly.

    Your father and your mother and all of you areas you

    used to call it in the Shadowlandsdead. The term is over: the

    holidays have begun. The dream is ended: this is the

    morning.

  • And as He spoke, He no longer looked to them like a

    lion; but the things that began to happen after that were so great and beautiful

    that I cannot write them.

  • And for us this is the end of all the stories, and we can most truly say that they all lived happily ever after. But

    for them it was only the beginning of the real story.

  • All their life in this world and all their adventures in Narnia had only been the cover and

    the title page: now at last they were beginning Chapter One of the Great Story which no one on earth has readwhich goes on for everin

    which every chapter is better than the one before.

  • May you know the truth that Jesus is the resurrection and life,and may you eagerly long

    for that fullness of joy at Gods right hand where there are are

    pleasures evermore.
