Matthew 22:23-30

Quote:

23 The same day the Sadducees, who say there is no resurrection, came to Him and asked Him, 24 saying: "Teacher, Moses said that if a man dies, having no children, his brother shall marry his wife and raise up offspring for his brother. 25 Now there were with us seven brothers. The first died after he had married, and having no offspring, left his wife to his brother. 26 Likewise the second also, and the third, even to the seventh. 27 Last of all the woman died also. 28 Therefore, in the resurrection, whose wife of the seven will she be? For they all had her."
29 Jesus answered and said to them, "You are mistaken, not knowing the Scriptures nor the power of God. 30 For in the resurrection they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are like angels [fn2] of God in heaven.


I was wondering, which scripture is it that Jesus thought the Sadducees were ignorant of, for I can't think of any old testament passage which indicates marriage would not persist in heaven?

Thanks,
Pete

I think the scriptures Jesus was referring to were those that point to a future resurrection state. This was the main point of their ignorance, since they didnt believe in the resurrection at all. I dont think Jesus meant that there were OT scriptures that talk about there being no marriage in heaven. that was new information he was now revealing, it seems.
