NET © Notes

sn He is not God of the dead but of the living. Jesus’ point was that if God could identify himself as God of the three old patriarchs, then they must still be alive when God spoke to Moses; and so they must be raised.

tn On this syntax, see BDF §192. The point is that all live “to” God or “before” God.
