" Is the body material or spiritual? Or a mixture? "For what it's worth, or I should say for starters, that's oxymoronic. Is the body material or spiritual? Or a mixture? Or do the terms not really apply in this case except in an anthropomorphic or anthropopathic manner? The latter would be somewhat in line with the thoughts of D. G. Leahy as quoted in the thread-seeder. Which tends to supports your statement.
Leahy implied that understanding this very nuance affects the incarnation of thought in a profound and necessary manner such that your faith in the proposition (Jesus is both material and spiritual) is valuable, while "understanding" the proposition of your faith is exponentially so.
Paul said we walk by faith not by sight. But when our faith transmutes what we see into spiritual reality we're resurrecting the "temporal" or "carnal" world as we were resurrected in Christ. When enough Christians are succeeding in that, the temporal or carnal world will role over (at least for them) to the bottom side of the missionary position where it was originally intended to be. The offspring of that newfangled birthing mechanism might be the kingdom of God.
Jesus' body was the same as KenS has or as John D. Brey has, Jesus never claimed to have different body than others, one gets to know, please. Right?
If Jesus had different body then kindly quote from him in this connection , please. Right?
