 28 Saying, "Master, Moses wrote for us that if any man's brother dies, leaving a wife and no children, then his brother should take his wife and raise up children for his brother.

 29 There were therefore seven brothers; and the first took a wife and died without children.

 30 And the second brother married her and he died childless.

 31 Then the third married her, and likewise all seven, and they died and left no children.

 32 Last of all the woman died also.

 33 Therefore in the resurrection whose wife is she? For all seven had her as a wife."

 34 And Jesus answering said to them, "The children of this world marry and are given in marriage;

 35 But those who are counted worthy to obtain that other world and the resurrection from the dead neither marry nor are given in marriage; [This verse is typically read without the understanding that for those who attain purity and salvation through the inward cross of self denial, they obtain that other world, (the kingdom), and the resurrection while alive on the earth.]

 36 Neither can they die anymore, for they are like the angels. And they are sons of God, since they are the sons of the resurrection.
