God of the living

God of the living is the name that Jesus (Yeshua‘) gave to His Father when He was discussing resurrection with the Jewish religious leaders. His argument was that since God introduced Himself to Moses as the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, those men were still living with Him.
