You don't make sense. It is just utter nonsense that differences in modern and ancient notions of "spiritual" could result in the disappearance of a dead body in a tomb.GakuseiDon wrote: ↑Thu Oct 11, 2018 1:31 amThe issue is to avoid confusing modern notions of "spiritual" with ancient notions. There is a difference between sarx (flesh), soma (body), pneuma (spirit, breath, wind) overlapping somewhat with psyche (soul, spirit). Generally, "physical" human bodies were made of flesh (a combination of earth, water, fire, air), while "spiritual" daemon bodies were made of fire and air. Aether was also in the mix for creatures living above the firmament.
Or the body of flesh is transformed into something else, as Ben noted.
. If Jesus was a physical human being who was killed and people in antiquity saw his dead body then it could not have vanished merely because it was believed that he was made of fire and air.
The NT contains many claims about people who were raised from the dead and in all those stories the dead simply came back to life.
See Luke 8 where it is claimed Jairus' daughter was raised from the dead. Her dead body did not disappear.
See John 11 where it is claimed Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead. The dead body of Lazarus did not vanish into thin air.
In fact, in the NT, it is claimed that people would re-appear after they were dead for years when they raised from the dead.
Moses and Elijah came back to life in the gMark Jesus story and appeared before Jesus, Peter, John and James.
The character called Jesus in the NT was supposedly seen alive after he was dead for three days and to show that their Jesus physically resurrected they claimed he ate food in the presence of his disciples.And there appeared unto them Elias with Moses: and they were talking with Jesus.
The claim that the dead body of NT Jesus disappeared because he was spiritually resurrected is just a modern propaganda.
