The Resurrection According to Bizarro

Is Dan Piraro a closet Lubavitcher? Apparently he holds according to the opinion of the AriZal that the resurrection of the dead is the final state of perfection (after the Messianic Era.) Thus we see his depiction of a tzaddik in the World of Souls getting his body parts back in preparation for Olam HaBah (Olam HaTechiyah.)

Speaking of which, don't you just love people trying to sound intelligent regarding the logistics of techiyas hameisim? Witness these reader comments (scroll to the bottom) where folks attempt to understand what happens during resurrection if a man or woman had been married more than once.

A quote I came to think of:

On that day Sadducees approached him, saying that there is no resurrection. They put this question to him, saying, "Teacher, Moses said, 'If a man dies 16 without children, his brother shall marry his wife and raise up descendants for his brother.'

Now there were seven brothers among us. The first married and died and, having no descendants, left his wife to his brother.

The same happened with the second and the third, through all seven.

Finally the woman died.

Now at the resurrection, of the seven, whose wife will she be? For they all had been married to her."

Jesus said to them in reply, "You are misled because you do not know the scriptures or the power of God.

At the resurrection they neither marry nor are given in marriage but are like the angels in heaven.

And concerning the resurrection of the dead, have you not read what was said to you by God,

'I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob'? He is not the God of the dead but of the living."
