They asked him, "Teacher, we know that you say and teach what is right, and aren't partial to anyone, but truly teach the way of God.

Is it lawful for us to pay taxes to Caesar, or not?"

But he perceived their craftiness, and said to them, "Why do you test me?

Show me a denarius. Whose image and inscription are on it?" They answered, "Caesar's."

He said to them, "Then give to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's."

They weren't able to trap him in his words before the people. They marveled at his answer, and were silent.

Some of the Sadducees came to him, those who deny that there is a resurrection.

They asked him, "Teacher, Moses wrote to us that if a man's brother dies having a wife, and he is childless, his brother should take the wife, and raise up children for his brother.

There were therefore seven brothers. The first took a wife, and died childless.

The second took her as wife, and he died childless.

The third took her, and likewise the seven all left no children, and died.

Afterward the woman also died.

Therefore in the resurrection whose wife of them will she be? For the seven had her as a wife."

Jesus said to them, "The sons of this age marry, and are given in marriage.

But those who are considered worthy to attain to that age and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry, nor are given in marriage.

For they can't die any more, for they are like the angels, and are sons of God, being sons of the resurrection.

But that the dead are raised, even Moses showed at the bush, when he called the Lord 'The God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.'

Now he is not the God of the dead, but of the living, for all are alive to him."

Some of the scribes answered, "Teacher, you speak well."

They didn't dare to ask him any more questions.
