Title: What kind of body did Jesus have when He was resurrected ?
Post by: Quasar on February 28, 2016, 11:08:30 AM
This is one of the most highly controversial issues to be found in the Bible. Jesus resurrection body is mostly seen as physical, yet according to the what the Bible teaches us in 1 Cor.15:42 to 54, it is hardly possible Jesus body was the very same as the one He died in. Because we read in the Corinthian resurrection passage, the body is sown perishable and raised imperishable, in verse 42. And in verse 52 and 53, the body is changed in a twinkling of an eye from perishable to imperishable and from mortal to immortal.So, how is it then that Jesus appeared to more than 500 eye witness in a materialized physical body, according to 1 Cor.15:6?

IMO, the answer to that question may well be in the fact of what is found in Gen.18-19 and 32, as well as in other places, about the angels who had the power to materialize physically in the mission God sent them here on earth to accomplish. With that in mind, it is therefore entirely possible for the resurrected Jesus, the Son of God, to have the same powers as the angels had, and is how He appeared in the materialized spiritual body, in a physical form.There is another example of this that appears will take place during the Millennial reign of Christ here on the earth, when He will reign on the throne of David in the restored kingdom of Israel. All of those who participate in the first resurrection, in Rev.20:4 and 6, will be made priests of God and of Christ, and rule with Him for 1,000 years. Here again, there will be resurrected bodies, changed from perishable to imperishable and from mortal to immortal bodies. But will need to be materialized physical bodies in order to serve in a human environment, clearly visible to everyone during that period of time, much the same as it was with Jesus for 40 days after His resurrection.The following are links to the views of others on this interesting, but controversial subject.
