Jesus never taught reincarnation, what Bible are you reading?
Yes he did.... you can lie to yourself all you want. We both KNOW he did and if you do not know that fact then you do not know other facts he indeed taught.
Check your Bible again. Im sure its the same I read.
When Jesus resurrected, did He reincarnate in another time, place and different body? No, the Bible is very clear that His body came back to life, not into a different body. Lazarus' body was raised, he did not become a different body altogether.
The glorified body does not imply reincarnation, it means that His body that was corrupt before now is no longer corrupt. Death was defeated. Reincarnation is a continuous cycle of life and death, life and death, life and death, and death is never defeated at all. The Bible says Jesus will come back the same as when He left. That means the same body He left in. So how can that be reincarnation?
KJV 1 Corinthians 15:51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, 52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. 53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. 54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. 55 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? 56 The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.
Reincarnation comes from the Hindu-buddhist philosophy of soul transmigration. This is the "religious" concept of the eternal birth-death-birth cycle, where a soul moves from body to body. The status of each successive body, whether human or animal, is the direct result of the quality of the life the soul led in the previous body.
Jesus did not reincarnate into another body, as maybe an animal, or a fish, or a bug....It was His body that was raised up, now to incorruption.
Hebrews 9:27 It is appointed unto man once to die, then after this the judgment.
Oh grave, where is thy victory? If the person goes from soul migration from body to body, each body dies again and again and again. Each body is corrupt and will die. But the resurrection from the dead means once this body dies, at the last trump, the call of Christ, this body will then raise up and put off death. Jesus has defeated death, once for all. This body with this soul, will be changed, not to another body, but this body will change to no longer be corrupt. The Bible does not teach reincarnation. Jesus is alive now, as He was when He ascended and will come back as He left.
