Traditional Church dogma reserves the resurrection of the dead to
eternal life for Christians alone and holds out no hope for the Jews
unless they convert to Christianity. Yet more and more frequently
the question arises, “What happens to the Jews who died as

Sadducees that there is no resurrection
(Mark 12:18) has no foundation in either
