Did Jesus rise from the dead in the same body He died in?

Well... Yes siree bob He sure did! It was the same body but it was also a glorified body. How do know? Because the Bible tells me so. The Bible teaches me that when He was raised physically, His body was a glorified body. He had the the same body, but it was different. Here's how the Bible explains that:

"So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown a perishable body, it is raised an imperishable body; it is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory; it is sown in weakness, it is raised in power; it is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body. If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body." 1 Corinthians15:42-44

I believe the physical resurrection of Jesus is a very important doctrine. Why because the Bible tells me so.

"and if Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is vain, your faith also is vain." 1 Corinthians 15:14

Let me unpack that a bit. The fact is, apart from Christ’s bodily resurrection, we have no Savior, no salvation, and no hope of eternal life. As the apostle Paul said, our faith would be “useless” and the life-giving power of the gospel would be altogether eliminated.

So it's really important for us to know that the physical resurrection of Jesus that death has been conquered and that we too as Christians will be physically resurrected. If we deny that and say that Jesus did not raise from the dead we are saying that death had victory over Him. But heaven forbid if that were the case we Christians would be without hope, and sin and death would still have power over us. But thanks be to Jesus that's not the case.

Another point to make here is the fact that the bodily resurrection of Jesus affirmed and proved the divine nature of Jesus. If God is eternal, then He cannot die. If Jesus was dead and remained dead, then He could not be God. His bodily resurrection proved He was more than a man; Jesus is the God-man, or God in human form. That's my King, do you know Him?

Other interesting facts about Jesus' resurrected and glorified body is that:
  • He could consume food (Luke 24:41-43; John 21:12-15a),
  • He could materialize and vanish (John 20:19-20; Luke 24:36-39; John 20:26; Luke 24:30-31)
  • He could be touched (Luke 24:38-40; John 20:24-28; Matthew 28:1; 8-10; John 20:17)
And..."We know that when Christ appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is." (1 John 3:2)

Christ was resurrected in the resurrection body which is the imperishable belonging to Heaven and not the body he died to which is the perishable of this earth.

According to the doctrine of the Trinity, why does Jesus' resurrection prove the divine nature of Jesus?

According to the doctrine of the Trinity, "what he was, he remained" and then "human nature was assumed". (Catholic Catechism 469-470)

So according to the doctrine of the Trinity, only the human nature of Jesus died. So only his human nature was resurrected.

In other words, according to the doctrine of the Trinity, the human nature of Jesus was resurrected just like the Lazarus' human nature was resurrected.

So explain WHY "if Jesus was dead and remained dead, then He could not be God". Since he would still be the second Person of the Trinity just as before "human nature was assumed" (according to the doctrine of the Trinity).


Here is my answer to the question of this thread... Did Jesus rise from the dead in the same body He died in?

No. Jesus rose from the dead in the same body that he wrestled Jacob with, that he walked with Adam with, etc.

I believe Jesus had the same body he has now up until he "made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men"...

Philippians 2:6-8... Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.

Here is an overview of what I believe...

For this creation, YHWH God (the only one who transcends all creations) determined to create a universe with a kingdom of redeemed humans (living souls) for his glory where he would reign as a living soul himself. The Scriptures describe how God would accomplish his plan. In an instant, transcendent God (called God the Father) created the supernatural and space-time of this universe and also became immanent as a spirit (called the Spirit of God) and in the form of a living soul (called the Word of God) with a glorious body. God the Father then created all things within the universe by the power of the Spirit of God commanded by the Word of God. But whereas God created a human spirit and soul for each of us, God himself as the Word became the human spirit and soul of Jesus. At his conception, Jesus' glorious body was changed to a mortal body to be made like us so he could make reconciliation for our sins. At his resurrection, Jesus' mortal body was changed back to a glorious body and he will also give each of his elect a glorious body when he returns to reign in his kingdom forever.

The resurrection of the Christ, BTW is Gods anointing, is in you, or is supposed to be resurrected in you. Christ is not a man but the disposition of the man anointed of God.
