Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Luke 20:36

_ _ neither ... die any more — Marriage is ordained to perpetuate the human family; but as there will be no breaches by death in the future state, this ordinance will cease.

_ _ equal — or “like.”

_ _ unto the angels — that is, in the immortality of their nature.

_ _ children of God — not in respect of character but nature; “being the children of the resurrection” to an undecaying existence (Romans 8:21, Romans 8:23). And thus the children of their Father’s immortality (1 Timothy 6:16).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Luke 20:27-38.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Luke 20:36

They are the children of God — In a more eminent sense when they rise again.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Luke 20:36

Neither can they die any more: for they are equal unto the angels; and are the children of God, being the (h) children of the resurrection.

(h) That is, men who partake in the resurrection: for as we truly say that they will indeed live who will enjoy everlasting bliss, so do those indeed rise who rise to life; though if this word "resurrection" is taken generally, it refers also to the wicked, who will rise to condemnation, which is not properly life, but death.
