For those who would like to explore an alternative view to what Jesus post resurrection body was, let me pose this question for you:

As we read in John 1:1-2, reference to the Word, is equated as that of Jesus: "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning." In John 17:5: "And now Father, glorify me in your presence with the glory I had with you before the world began." In Proverbs 8:22-23: "The Lord brought me forth as the first of His works, before His deeds of old; I was appointed from eternity, from the beginning, before the world began." Finally, in Col.1:15: "He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation."

As such, it is clear, the pre-incarnate Jesus was the first of YHWH's heavenly host spirit world, of angels, through whom He created the universe according to Heb.1:1-2: "In the past God spoke to our forefathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these last days He has spoken to us by His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, and through whom He made the universe."

During the old testament life of the pre-incarnate Jesus, He was seen at various times, called, a theophany, such as where He is referred to as Lord, in Genesis.18. And again in Genesis 32, where Jacob wrestled with Him and called Him God. And in Nebuchadnezzar's fiery furnace when He appeared as the fourth man in the furnace with Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, in Daniel 3, among a number of other places.

Which brings us to the issues Paul cited in 1 Cor.15:42-44: "So will it be with the resurrection of the dead. The body that is sown is perishable, it is raised imperishable; it is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory; it is sown in weakeness, it is raised in power; it is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body." And in verse 50: "I declare to you brothers, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nordoes the perishable inherit the imperishable."

And again in 1 Cor.15:52-54: "In a flash, in a twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed - in a flash, in a twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet: For the trumpet will sound the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. For the perishable must clothe itself with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality., then the saying that is written will come true: "Death has been swallowed up in victory."

Now the question is, was the pre-incarnate body of Jesus the same as His resurrected body, since it had all the characteristics of a physical human body? As illustrated above in both the bodies of the pre-incarnate Jesus, as well as the angels who appeared in the old testament God sent on various missions to earth, such as those with Abraham, in Genesis 18 and 19, where they both ate and were physically active?

If not, provide examples of why the visible glorified body of Jesus after His resurrection was not the very same as that of His pre-incarnate body. As well as the angels who appeared in visible bodies, all with every physical aspect of the mortal physical bodies of human beings.
