In Jesus’ time, the Sadducees, the priestly class that performed sacrifices in the Temple, denied the resurrection of the dead. For them, life ended definitely in death. Today, atheists not only deny God’s existence, but also human immortality. For them, belief in heaven, in the resurrection is but a delusion to allay our fear of mortality and of the absence of any eternal significance to our lives.
