32nd Sunday in Ordinary Time
In today’s Gospel, we hear about an encounter between Jesus and some Sadducees. Jesus argues from the same written Law of Moses to show that there is resurrection. Using the texts from the Book of Exodus (Chapter 3) that describe Moses’ encounter with God in the burning bush, Jesus shows that God is the God of the living, not the dead. Here Jesus uses the same method and texts of the Sadducees to counter them. As the Gospel text suggests, he beat them at their own game! Loyola Press: (A Jesuit Ministry)
