Luke 20

We have entered the final week of the life of Jesus on earth, and Luke takes between 1/4 and 1/5 (depending on your Bible version) of his gospel to write about this period: he clearly sees it as crucial (pun intended!). There is more teaching from Jesus, in the form of a parable and in answer to questions, and in particular his answer about resurrection and marriage shows how earth-bound those religious leaders were. He cannot agree with them that there is nothing after death, but neither does he teach that eternity is just this life going on for ever. He invites us to lift our hearts and minds to a resurrection life that is far better than simply this life being endless. Will we?
