Today’s lectures have to do with life after death. The first lecture is from the second book Makkabeeën. From this book a part of a martyr’s history is read: a mother and her seven sons refuse to break with the traditions of their ancestors and allow themselves to be tortured to death because they believe that God will raise them to a new, eternal life. In the second reading, Jesus is talking to the Sadducees, who do not believe in the resurrection.
