    Contributed by Sajeev Painunkal, Sj on Nov 6, 2010
    based on 4 ratings
     | 4,834 views

    The Sadducees try to ridicule Jesus with a stupid question about what happens in heaven. The answer of Jesus is not about the how but they why. If we don't believe in a life after death, we will have no purpose for our life on earth.
