In today’s Gospel, the Sadducees are trying to trap Jesus, using a slightly

exaggerated and absurd case about whose wife someone will be in heaven if they have married many times. They have no faith in the resurrection and therefore do not grasp that in a place of peace, justice and freedom people can not be "owned" or "given".

Questions like the one posed by the Sadducees ignore the radical freshness of the Kingdom of God. All we can really be sure of is that that place will be radically different to anything we know, a new creation.

We are all "children of this world" whoa re called to be "children of the resurrection." You might recall today someone who has passed away, who is some sense, because of their influence on people, "lives on" in the lives of those they touched. But they are "children of the resurrection." not because of their own goodness, but because of the power of Christ to raise us from the dead.

Let us use this week to notice the moments of resurrection all around us. God’s Kingdom is also here and now, if we allow ourselves to be present and aware of this ongoing "new creation."

"You were bon a child of light’s wonder-ful secret—you return to the beauty you have always been." - Aberjhani
