(Read Luke 20 Part 1 First)

36 And they will never die again. In these respects they are like angels. They are children of God raised up to new life.

37 But now, as to whether the dead will be raised--even Moses proved this when he wrote about the burning bush. Long after Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob had died, he referred to the Lord* as `the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.'*1

38 So he is the God of the living, not the dead. They are all alive to him."

39 "Well said, Teacher!" remarked some of the teachers of religious law who were standing there.

40 And that ended their questions; no one dared to ask any more.

41 Then Jesus presented them with a question. "Why is it," he asked, "that the Messiah is said to be the son of David?

42 For David himself wrote in the book of Psalms: `The LORD said to my Lord, Sit in honor at my right hand2

43 until I humble your enemies, making them a footstool under your feet.'*3

44 Since David called him Lord, how can he be his son at the same time?"

45 Then, with the crowds listening, he turned to his disciples and said,

46 "Beware of these teachers of religious law! For they love to parade in flowing robes and to have everyone bow to them as they walk in the marketplaces. And how they love the seats of honor in the synagogues and at banquets.

47 But they shamelessly cheat widows out of their property, and then, to cover up the kind of people they really are, they make long prayers in public. Because of this, their punishment will be the greater."
