Response to Resurection of Christ...
Yes he did appear physically to his disciples after his resurection but it was not the same body....
I'd say it was the same body, but glorified. Able to shape shift, and with frequency modulation capability, or able to become physical or spiritual.
I say the same body because he clearly had the same wounds, and that's why the soldiers were instructed not to brake his legs after his death upon the cross.
So instead of breaking his legs they stabbed him in the side, which Thomas witnessed to after the resurrection.
I don't think the same body nullifies the purpose of his death, by any means.
And if he had a new body the tomb would not have been empty, and there would have been no point in the Angels removing the stone from the tomb.
I think JWs are wrong about the body of Jesus.
There is no biblical evidence claiming Jesus dead body was left behind.
In fact just the opposite. Like Lazarus, was raised physically.
