Doc I already proved that Jesus was flesh and bones. Neither you nor Nathan have proven differently.
I already proved Jesus shed His blood.
You and Nathan denounce me as something less than a truly spiritual person because I believe the Scriptures. I know some here say they believe the Scriptures but when someone tells me Jesus was not flesh and bones even after He said He said He has flesh and bones is pretty much an indicator of where one is in their maturity in their walk.
That's because we weren't trying to prove differently.
Proving Jesus had flesh and bone was completely beside the point I was trying to make. I'm not arguing with you that Jesus didn't say he was "flesh and bones". What I was pointing out was that it is a mistake and a complete misread of what Jesus was conveying by that statement, to assert that this means that he still has the same kind of physical body we have.
It's clear to me that he was saying to them, "look, I'm really here; I've been resurrected. I'm not a "ghost"; I'm not a figment of your imagination".
He wasn't saying, "look, because I have a physical body right now that you can touch and that allows me to eat with you, means that you should interpret that to mean that this is the physical body I will always have, or that it's a physical body that's just like yours."
I read the scriptures and I see that it says that we will be given new
bodies that are glorified and incorruptible
, not that our old, corruptible bodies of flesh and blood (or flesh and bone) will be recycled. And that we will be like him, because we will see him as he is.
I'm not "denouncing" you for anything, just pointing out that you're being unnecessarily stubborn.
And, you can't really make a comment like that about 'maturity in our walk' and expect people to take you seriously...
