The Sadducees have a question (Mk 12:18-12:18)

“Some Sadducees,

Who say that

There is no resurrection,

Came to Jesus.

They asked him

A question.”

 

Καὶ ἔρχονται Σαδδουκαῖοι πρὸς αὐτόν, οἵτινες λέγουσιν ἀνάστασιν μὴ εἶναι, καὶ ἐπηρώτων αὐτὸν λέγοντες

 

Matthew, chapter 22:23, and Luke, chapter 20:27, are almost word for word like this statement in Mark.  Only Matthew had this happen on the same day as the discussion about the Roman coin.  Mark said that some Sadducees came to Jesus (Καὶ ἔρχονται Σαδδουκαῖοι πρὸς αὐτόν).  These Sadducees were another Jewish aristocratic group that was tied to the Temple.  However, they did not believe in the bodily resurrection like the Pharisees did, since they said that there was no resurrection of the dead (οἵτινες λέγουσιν ἀνάστασιν μὴ εἶναι).  They too began to question Jesus (καὶ ἐπηρώτων αὐτὸν λέγοντες).
