God of the Dead (Matt 22:31-33)

 (Matthew 22:31-33)

Moving right along through chapter 22, Jesus attempts to answer questions: In heaven there is no beer marriage, he says, and then
31 But about the resurrection of the dead—have you not read what God said to you,
32 'I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob'? [editor's not: These guys are all dead, dead, and dead] He is not the God of the dead but of the living."
33 When the crowds heard this, they were astonished at his teaching.
Wow, so am I. God said he's the god of dead people, therefore he's not the god of the dead. Epic logic Fail.

Astonishing all right. About this, it says 'Jesus had silenced the Sadduccees”(22:34), which seems right. They were astonished by how crazy this guy was and they went back to being Sadducced, which sounds a lot more fun.

Maybe we should tell Romero. After "night", "dawn", "day", "land", "diary" and "survival", "God of the Dead" sounds like a cool movie title.
