FRENTE A LA CRUZ | La vida después de la muerte es cuando los fieles a Dios serán recompensados

Algunos saduceos, aquellos que niegan que hay una resurrección, se adelantaron y le plantearon una pregunta a Jesús".

Estamos entrando en las últimas dos semanas del Tiempo Ordinario. Las lecturas se están volviendo hacia los pensamientos del final de los tiempos. En medio de esto, nos encontramos con esta pregunta acerca de la resurrección.

BEFORE THE CROSS | Life after death is when God’s faithful will be rewarded

S ome Sadducees, those who deny that there is a resurrection, came forward and put a question to Jesus."

We're entering the last two weeks of Ordinary Time. The readings are turning toward thoughts of the end times. In the midst of that, we encounter this question about the resurrection.

This was a "hot button" question at the time of Jesus. At its beginning, Judaism didn't have a belief in the Resurrection. And it isn't explicitly mentioned in the first five books of the Bible — what, for them, would have been "Scripture."
