Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has ascended into heaven, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess..
Zechariah 3 New International Version (NIV)
3 Then he showed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of the Lord, and Satan[a] standing at his right side to accuse him. 2 The Lord said to Satan, “The Lord rebuke you, Satan! The Lord, who has chosen Jerusalem, rebuke you! Is not this man a burning stick snatched from the fire?”
3 Now Joshua was dressed in filthy clothes as he stood before the angel. 4 The angel said to those who were standing before him, “Take off his filthy clothes.”
Then he said to Joshua, “See, I have taken away your sin, and I will put fine garments on you.”
5 Then I said, “Put a clean turban on his head.” So they put a clean turban on his head and clothed him, while the angel of the Lord stood by.
6 The angel of the Lord gave this charge to Joshua: 7 “This is what the Lord Almighty says: ‘If you will walk in obedience to me and keep my requirements, then you will govern my house and have charge of my courts, and I will give you a place among these standing here.
Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.
8 “‘Listen, High Priest Joshua, you and your associates seated before you, who are men symbolic of things to come: I am going to bring my servant, the Branch. 9 See, the stone I have set in front of Joshua! There are seven eyes on that one stone, and I will engrave an inscription on it,’ says the Lord Almighty, ‘and I will remove the sin of this land in a single day.
11 Take the silver and gold and make a crown, and set it on the head of the high priest, Joshua son of Jozadak. 12 Tell him this is what the Lord Almighty says: ‘Here is the man whose name is the Branch, and he will branch out from his place and build the temple of the Lord. 13 It is he who will build the temple of the Lord, and he will be clothed with majesty and will sit and rule on his throne. And he will be a priest on his throne.
Therefore, it was necessary for him to be made in every respect like us, his brothers and sisters, so that he could be our merciful and faithful High Priest before God. Then he could offer a sacrifice that would take away the sins of the people.

Christians don't believe in reincarnation though.... so obviously their god doesn't either
Thus... Jesus can't be reincarnated because Christians don't believe in such things... meaning they can't exist
No… reincarnation is the spirit returning to a new body…
Resurrection is life returning to a dead body
As a baby spirit? Doesn't make sense. Theres only one me. What you think is 'past memory' is from some ancestor, you have lots of those in your lineage.
If the body is dead for three days thats impossible. Rigor has set in. Basing resurrection on either Lazarus (he was only "sleeping", i. e., coma) or Jesus missing body (because someone stole it) is reaching at best.
there is only progression or regression... depending on what that spirit has learned...
IF one has a past memory of a previous life it is a retained memory... God given for a purpose, whatever that might be
that's Christianity... I find that to be nonsense… but I believe its very possible, especially considering who brought him back
