People's Bible Notes for Matthew 22:30


Mt 22:30 Are as the angels of God. The physical relations of earthly marriage do not belong to spiritual beings. The saints when raised are like the angels. This does not deny personal intercourse or spiritual relationships, but the existence of fleshly ties.

Discussion for Matthew 22:30

  • Charles hodge on Matthew 22:30
    The Bible says flesh and blood will not enter into heaven with flesh and bone will because Jesus had flesh and bone with his new body his glorified body if a man and woman are of the same flesh then want that be of the same flesh in heaven why wouldn't God let us stay with our spouse that doesn't make sense because that's the joys of living for God he meant before Satan took over for us to live on this Earth as man and wife until Satan got in and messed it up and I think my opinion my opinion only we will go back and be man and wife in heaven there won't be no marrying or giving in marriage because I've been with my wife for 50 years and death did not separate us because I believe we're going to be eternally remember we are known as we are known we will have a mother and dad in heaven a brother and sister if you have a mother and dad then that means that they are man and wife you can't be a man and wife or a father and mother and God's will unless you are married and I don't mean the old marriage were the people used to get together and make a deal to have better financial unions we marry for love like our soulmates that's my opinion and remember Jesus said all with all things are possible with God

    what does th word resurrections mean
  • Chris - in Reply on Matthew 22:30
    Resurrection means, a person who has died has his body (or, remains) physically raised from the grave without any human contribution, i.e. the body rises up & comes to life by God's Power.

    In that passage you've quoted, Jesus was speaking with the Sadducees (a religious sect of the Jews) who didn't believe in the resurrection. They wanted to test Jesus about the after life as to which wife of the many a man had married, would be his wife when they all rose from the dead. Jesus told them that human marriage is an earthly union & such marriages don't figure in Heaven. Of those who were resurrected, we of course have Jesus Himself Who rose up from the dead & ascended back to God proving that His Sacrifice for mankind's sins were completed & fully acceptable to God Who had planned for this to happen. Then after Jesus' resurrection, many of those righteous people who had died earlier also arose from their graves & walked among the people (see Matthew 27:51-53).

    The Bible tells us that the next occasion of a resurrection will be in the future when Jesus comes to take away His people including raising up His people who have died (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18) & note the word 'sleep' is a euphemism for those who've already died. And again, after the Great Tribulation (a horrible time of the outpouring of God's Anger upon the world) there will be another general resurrection (read Revelation chapter 20).

    There are also instances where someone has died & they have come to life in the Old Testament: 1 Kings 17:17-24; 2 Kings 4:32-37; 2 Kings 13:21 and we have instances in the New Testament of people being brought back to life by Jesus or His disciples.
  • Mary Sue Richey on Matthew 22:30
    Will husband and wife know each other?
  • Mickey - in Reply on Matthew 22:30
    I believe after the Rapture that married couples will know each other. We will have discarded our fleshly bodies for spiritual bodies that don't corrupt. We're going to a party for the Lamb; the Bride will meet her Bridegroom.
    As I have read but not sure where, people who miss the rapture will of course have to survive 3 1/2 Years of pure hell on earth with a very mad Antichrist who demands your head. If you die saved during that time you'll join the rapture group. If you get saved & survive the 3&1/2years, their bodies won't be transformed & they will have kids.
    Question? Is your First love, Jesus Christ?
    Trust God. Trust in the Word.
