Rev Dr Greg Elsdon
Pentecost 22 – Choose to Hope! – Is there life beyond death, or will it be an entry into nothingness? At the time of Jesus, the Sadducees were a religious party who rejected the idea of resurrection. When some of them confronted Jesus with a silly question about marriage and resurrection, he told them, without making a definitive statement, that the resurrection life will not be the same as our present life. To have faith in the resurrection is to believe that God will redeem the life and work of Jesus from the death sentence imposed on him by history. We are not required to understand this intellectually; but we do need to know that we are living in the presence of a resurrection God. God affirmed the life of Jesus, because it was a life worth continuing.
Luke 20: 27-38
