Considering Jesus’ Resurrected Body

It seems there is some benefit to examining the question—what type of resurrected body did Jesus have?           It clearly was somewhat different in biological function and characteristics than His earlier body.  Notice that Jesus had a body that bore the wounds and marks of his crucifixion.  Picture the description that …
