Haggai 1:15b-2:9
the word of the LORD came by the prophet Haggai, saying ... take courage .. for I am with you ... Once again, ...I will shake the heavens and the earth and the sea and the dry land; and I will shake all the nations, so that the treasure of all nations shall come, and I will fill this house with splendor.
Job 19:23-27a
For I know that my Redeemer lives, and that at the last he will stand upon the earth ...  I shall see God

Second: II Thessalonians 2: 1-5, 13-17 :  Do not be alarmed about the coming of the Lord ... We must give thanks for those who were called by the Lord  - hold fast to the traditions we taught you ... may the Lord turn your hearts towards the love of God and the fortitude of Christ.

Gospel: Luke 20: 27-38  - The Sadducees try to trick Jesus with a question about brothers marrying their brother's widow.   Jesus teaches them about the resurrection - God is God of the living, not the dead.


Hope.  Faith.   Resurrection / eternal life - our belief in the future that Christ promised, rather than speculation about what life after death is like.
