“As to the resurrection…”

“As to the resurrection…”
We’ve heard these stories so many times, I fear we fail to appreciate the incredible wisdom displayed: There was a huge theological argument between the Pharisees and Sadducees, going on for decades, over whether or not there would be a resurrection, a raising of the dead.  Jesus settled it with one incredibly profound, simple statement – “As to the resurrection—have you not read in the Book of Moses how God said to him, ‘I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob’?  He is not the God of the dead, but of the living.”
Wow.  Bang – settled that issue.
