    Barnes' Notes on Matthew 22:30

    Neither marry ... - This was a full answer to the objections of the Sadducees.

    But are as the angels of God - That is, in the manner of their conversation; in regard to marriage and the mode of their existence.

    Luke adds that they shall be "equal with the angels." That is, they shall be elevated above the circumstances of mortality, and live in a manner and in a kind of conversation similar to that of the angels. It does not imply that they shall be equal in intellect, but only "in the circumstances of their existence," as that is distinguished from the way in which mortals live. He also adds, "Neither do they die any more, but are the children of God; being the children of the resurrection," or being accounted worthy to be raised up to life, and therefore "sons of God raised up to him."

    Wesley's Notes on Matthew 22:30

    22:30 They are as the angels - Incorruptible and immortal. So is the power of God shown in them! So little need had they of marriage!
