Scripture says: "The same day Sadducees came to him, who say that there is no resurrection; and they asked him a question, saying, "Teacher, Moses said, 'If a man dies, having no children, his brother must marry the widow, and raise up children for his brother.' Now there were seven brothers among us; the first married, and died, and having no children left his wife to his brother. So too the second and third, down to the seventh. After them all, the woman died. In the resurrection, therefore, to which of the seven will she be wife? For they all had her." But Jesus answered them, "You are wrong, because you know neither the scriptures nor the power of God. For in the resurrection they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are like angels in heaven."

It appears that angels do not marry, so it would appear that the question of male and female does not arise.

Answer

Angels are "sexless spirit beings," according to the Bible, that, when they manifest themselves to be seen by the human eye, appear as "men."

"...there came TWO ANGELS to Sodom at even..." (Gen.19:1).

"...they [the men of Sodom] called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are THE MEN which came in to thee this night?" (verse 5)

Daniel wrote: "...I lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and behold a certain man... And I Daniel alone saw the vision: for the men that were with me saw not the vision; but a great quaking fell upon them, so that they fled to hide themselves." (Dan.10:5-7)

"...there came again and touched me one like the appearance of a man, and he strengthened me..." (verse 18).

Referring to people who shall attain to Eternal Life, Jesus says: "...in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but ARE AS THE ANGELS OF GOD IN HEAVEN." (Matt.22:30)

"Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?" (Heb.1:14)
