I have a question about this scripture:
25 When the dead rise, they will neither marry nor be given in marriage; they will be like the angels in heaven.
Is Jesus referring to the spiritually dead (those not born again) or the dead physical bodies of the born again believers who have died? Or both??
This is my musing on this so far:
Is Jesus making a distiction between those who are spiritually dead (not born again) & die...there is a resurrection of the dead in Revelation? Jesus speaks frequently about those who are in Him have everlasting life; their souls live forever & their bodies are resurrected to assume places of authority when Jesus returns to earth. When we are born again, I understand that we are elevated to poistions of authority over those of the angels.(cf: Hebrews 1)
Hopefully, I'm not making more of this that is intended.
Any insight from others is welcomed!
