    Is Jesus a living spirit?
    A yes or no will suffice.

    A Yes or No question is usually a trap.

    Like all virtuous humans of the past, yes. Right?
    None of them was a god . Right?

    If you define what a living spirit is, then I might be able to answer. Can it, for instance, have a bad breath?

    No. In my understanding, "spirit" needs to be embodied to be considered to be considered "living." It is written that he died on a cross nearly 2000 years ago.

    True, my belief maintains that.
    "Brahma satyam, Jagan-mithya .." (Brahman, what constitutes the universe, alone, is the truth, the observed phenomena are illusions).

    It is written that He rose bodily from the dead nearly 2000 years ago.
    He is now a living person and a life giving Spirit. He is man and God.
