Some other quotes about the resurrected body of Jesus to think about ...
(seems pretty clear, the body was raised but changed greatly)
1 Peter 3:18 and 1 Corinthians 15:45
Jesus was, "put to death in the flesh, but made alive in the spirit"
Jesus became a life-giving spirit ... for flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom."
Luke 24:39 After walking through a locked door in his new body Jesus says to the disciples, "See my hands and my feet, that it is I myself; handle
me, and see, for a spirit does not have flesh and bones as you see that I have"
Mark 12:25 makes it clear that there won't be sex in heaven. No procreation. No 72 virgins servicing men for an eternity. Since sex is supposed to
be in marriage (according to the Abrahamic religions), and there is no marriage, that means there will be no sex. "For when they shall rise from the
dead, they neither marry, nor are given in marriage; but are as the angels which are in heaven."
I'm not a Paul fan ... but here you go ...
1 Corinthians 15 (what Paul says ... Jesus died and appeared)
3 For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance[a]: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, 4 that he was buried,
that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, 5 and that he appeared to Cephas, and then to the Twelve. 6 After that, he appeared
to more than five hundred of the brothers and sisters at the same time, most of whom are still living, though some have fallen asleep. 7 Then he
appeared to James, then to all the apostles, 8 and last of all he appeared to me also, as to one abnormally born.
Paul Teaching on The Resurrected Body ... 1 Corinthians 15
From Catholic Answers - What will our resurrected bodies be like
But someone will ask, “How are the dead raised? With what kind of body will they come?” 36 How foolish! What you sow does not come to life
unless it dies. 37 When you sow, you do not plant the body that will be, but just a seed, perhaps of wheat or of something else. 38 But God gives it a
body as he has determined, and to each kind of seed he gives its own body. 39 Not all flesh is the same: People have one kind of flesh, animals have
another, birds another and fish another. 40 There are also heavenly bodies and there are earthly bodies; but the splendor of the heavenly bodies is
one kind, and the splendor of the earthly bodies is another. 41 The sun has one kind of splendor, the moon another and the stars another; and star
differs from star in splendor.
42 So will it be with the resurrection of the dead. The body that is sown is perishable, it is raised imperishable; 43 it is sown in dishonor, it
is raised in glory; it is sown in weakness, it is raised in power; 44 it is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body.
If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body. 45 So it is written: “The first man Adam became a living being”[f]; the last Adam, a
life-giving spirit. 46 The spiritual did not come first, but the natural, and after that the spiritual. 47 The first man was of the dust of the earth;
the second man is of heaven. 48 As was the earthly man, so are those who are of the earth; and as is the heavenly man, so also are those who are of
heaven. 49 And just as we have borne the image of the earthly man, so shall we[g] bear the image of the heavenly man.
50 I declare to you, brothers and sisters, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable.
51 Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed— 52 in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last
trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. 53 For the perishable must clothe itself with the
imperishable, and the mortal with immortality. 54 When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality, then
the saying that is written will come true: “Death has been swallowed up in victory
Teachings on the Resurrected Body through the past 2000 years
The Church teaches that at the resurrection the bodies of the just will be re-modeled and transfigured to the pattern of the risen Christ. Like
his body, our resurrected bodies will be those of a person in his prime. They will be incapable of suffering. They will have a spiritual nature—not
that they will be pure spirit, but they will be like that of Jesus, who could penetrate closed doors after he had risen. They will have a new agility
in that they will be able to obey the soul with great ease and speed—so that when the spirit is willing, the flesh will no longer be weak! Our
bodies will be free from all deformity and will reflect God’s beauty to the degree that our souls do.
These will be the same bodies people had in earthly life—but our resurrection bodies will not die and, for the righteous, they will be transformed
into a glorified state, freed from suffering and pain, and enabled to do many of the amazing things Jesus could do with his glorified body (cf. 1 Cor.
15:35–44, 1 John 3:2).
The Fourth Lateran Council (1215), infallibly defined that at the second coming Jesus "will judge the living and the dead, to render to every person
according to his works, both to the reprobate and to the elect. All of them will rise with their own bodies, which they now wear, so as to receive
according to their deserts, whether these be good or bad [Rom. 2:6–11]" (constitution 1).
Most recently, the Catechism of the Catholic Church reiterated this long-defined teaching, stating, "‘We believe in the true resurrection of this
flesh that we now possess’ (Council of Lyons II). We sow a corruptible body in the tomb, but he raises up an incorruptible body, a ‘spiritual
body’ (cf. 1 Cor 15:42–44)" (CCC 1017)
