Sometimes the opponents of Christianity will attack by trying to show how supposedly our doctrines don’t make sense. The Sadducees, a Jewish sect who did not believe in any resurrection of the dead, attacked the resurrection when they asked Jesus about a woman who had been married seven times.
Each of her husbands had died after marrying her. I don’t know, don’t you think the last few husbands would have been a little concerned about getting married to her?
Which one will be her husband in the resurrection? It wasn’t an honest question, because the Sadducees did not believe in the resurrection.
Rather, they were trying to prove that that the resurrection wasn’t real because it would be silly and immoral for a woman to be married to seven husbands at the same time (Matthew 22:23-33).
Jesus answered, saying that there would be no marriage in Heaven and that God was the God of the living, not the dead. He rebuked them for not knowing the scriptures or believing in the power of God.
In Corinth, there were those who attacked the doctrine of the resurrection of the dead with dishonest questions.
1 Corinthians 15:35 But some man will say, How are the dead raised up? and with what body do they come?
