Additional reading and links
- The source for the Sadducees’ challenge to Jesus on marriage and the resurrection (Luke 20:27–40) is probably the story of Sarah and Tobias in the apocryphal Book of Tobit. You can read the story in Tobit 3:7–17.
- Luke 22:43–44 is one of the most difficult New Testament passages from a textual standpoint. Bart D. Ehrman and Mark A. Plunkett argue that the passage was not written by Luke, but was added to Luke’s Gospel at a later date: “The Angel and the Agony: The Textual Problem of Luke 22:43–44,” Catholic Biblical Quarterly 45 (1983): 401–16. BYU professor Lincoln H. Blumell argues that the passage was written by Luke, but was removed from early New Testament manuscripts: “Luke 22:43–44: An Anti-Docetic Interpolation or an Apologetic Omission?,” TC: A Journal of Biblical Textual Criticism 19 (2014): 1–35.
