    Julie, that is not scriptural. The seven brothers means just that seven brothers or men. We must not read anything in the Scriptures that is not there. The Scriptures interpts the Scriptures. Those religious leaders tried to trick Jesus by using the law of God given by Moses concerning marriage. They didn't believe in the resurrection of the dead. Praise God!
  • Julie kalashnikoff
    The seven brothers represent the seven books of the Law in the Old Covenant. The wife is the Bride of Christ. There were no children from any of the 7 brothers because they represent the law showing man's imperfection. A picture of lack of intimacy with God. W/o intimacy there are no children/fruit. The old nature and new nature cannot be intimate

    luke 20-46 beware of scribes,which desire to walk in long robes, and love the
    greetings in the markets, sounds like the roman catholic, orthodox churches
    synagogues, and many false apostate churches, i forgot also islam.
    the blind leading the blind
  • Houston for verse 36
    It is my belief that a true bible resurrection is rising with an incorruptible body neither can they die anymore so it is my belief that Lazarus was not a bible resurrection but a bringing to life that he died with a natural body hence he died again or else he and the widow son is still here or Luke wrote wrong when he said neither can they die anymore!!
