Flesh, Bone, And Blood

Q. In your article “Believe in Your Heart”, you mention that Jesus walked with His disciples, talked with them, ate with them and permitted them to touch Him to assure themselves He was not just a spirit, but a man with flesh and bone. Paul writes that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God (1 Corinthians 15:50). So after the Rapture, will our glorified bodies no longer have flowing blood and a pumping heart?

A. In the article I used Luke 24:38-39 to show that Jesus was proving to his disciples that he was a tangible physical being, not a ghost. But in 1 Cor. 15:50 Paul was making the point that in our natural state we cannot inherit the Kingdom because natural men have a sin nature. We have to be perfected first. I don’t think either statement was meant as an indication of our post rapture/resurrection physical make up.
