Hey the man asks and speaks...about winged angeloi.And MAAT, your angle keeps changing and it changes so much that it is hard to keep up with. You were pointing out earlier how the Saducees didn't believe in resurrection at all and that was why they were asking Jesus about marriage to catch him and make his idea look silly. They weren't asking about the nature of resurrection and they had no idea that he was going to say what he said. They were questioning about resurrection itself as if it is a silly idea, not the nature of it. They were trying to say the idea is silly by raising the problem that would happen if people were resurrected as to which of the 7 would be her husband after being resurrected. And you seemed to be on board with their point of view. You suggested that the idea of resurrection was a Greek idea. Now you don't seem to be on board with them, and the point now is all about the nature of resurrection rather than resurrection itself. So NOW it's the NATURE of the resurrection that is now the point and now THAT is being used to show Jesus was espousing Greek ideas. But even that is not true as this can be found in Hebrew ideas.
I told you before : do not bother.
Greek or not, it's a point we can never get confirmed unless we could travel back in time.
If we include the question on the women the message is essentially that in heaven no dead people can be found, all are alive.
(easy interpretation, and i shows that the sadducees were allready aware of the arguement and prepared to have a good laugh, they get a non-sequitur.) But as i wrote their is an issue of the law being revoked.
Would (if we presume him real) Jerusalem not have been destroyed if he had not provoked them?
And what salvation but for 7 hypothetical jews!
And noone have seene nor hearde anything yet.
A god-awfull lot of wars and bloodshed, yes.
I like to go on fishing trips too, but my stance would be kind of comparable with the sadducees given all the hate spouted freely and unthinkingly.
But that is not entirely right. This time i'm not using the greek orignal, or as close too, text, but as is!!!
So i can imagine the translators trying to add head and foot to the translatin and logic dictating an ever closer resemblance to the text as it is now.
