Luke 20:35-36

Context
20:35 But those who are regarded as worthy to share in 1  that age and in the resurrection from the dead neither marry nor are given in marriage. 2  20:36 In fact, they can no longer die, because they are equal to angels 3  and are sons of God, since they are 4  sons 5  of the resurrection.

1 tn Grk “to attain to.”

2 sn Life in the age to come is different than life here (they neither marry nor are given in marriage). This means Jesus’ questioners had made a false assumption that life was the same both now and in the age to come.

3 sn Angels do not die, nor do they eat according to Jewish tradition (1 En. 15:6; 51:4; Wis 5:5; 2 Bar. 51:10; 1QH 3.21-23).

4 tn Grk “sons of God, being.” The participle ὄντες (ontes) has been translated as a causal adverbial participle here.

5 tn Or “people.” The noun υἱός (Juios) followed by the genitive of class or kind (“sons of…”) denotes a person of a class or kind, specified by the following genitive construction. This Semitic idiom is frequent in the NT (L&N 9.4).
