The Resurrection

How wise we think we are!  How intelligent!  So we have the boldness to deny the truth of things we don't like, even in God's Word!  The Sadducees are not so different from us.  They preferred to believe in what they could see and touch and test by the senses, so they denied the resurrection and the existence of angels and immortal spirits.  What would possess someone to deny so great a hope?  What advantage would there be in denying the resurrection?  What if they're wrong?  From Matthew 22:23-33.
