Kresta in the Afternoon – April 1, 2024 – Hour 2

What are some heterodox positions that are challenging the historic teaching on the nature of Christ’s Resurrection body? We explore it with Dr. Jim Ware.

Christians have historically understood that Jesus rose to life in His crucified body, citing his encounter with Thomas. But some scholars now argue that Christ’s Resurrected body was a “spiritual” body “purged of every element of flesh and blood.” How can we square that with reports of Jesus eating with His disciples and inviting them to tough his wounds? We examine it with Dr. James Ware.
