God of the living

Oops! All public speakers have those moments where what they intended to say and what they actually said were not the same thing. In the Sunday sermon on January 16, 2022 (The Christian Bucket List) I referenced Matthew 22:31-32, which reads,

But concerning the resurrection of the dead, have you not read what was spoken to you by God, saying, ‘I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob’? God is not the God of the dead, but of the living.’

In the lesson, I misquoted the text as “I am the God of the dead, not the God of the living,” which of course is not the case. My apology for any confusion or concern the statement caused.
