June 3, 2015 (Tobit 3:1-11a, 16-17a) (Mark 12:18-27)

“He is not the God of the dead but of the living.” The story from the Book of Tobit continues as Tobit prays to be delivered from his blindness and a woman by the name of Sarah prays to be delivered from a demon who has killed her previous 7 husbands. (The Archangel Raphael will come to the rescue of both.) the Sadducees joke about another woman who has had 7 husbands. They do not believe in the after life and resurrection. So, they asked, what to them is a joke, when the woman dies “whose wife she will be.” But, the resurrection is no joke as Jesus quotes from the voice of the burning bush in the Book of Exodus.
