Good Saturday morning all....Beautiful day here in Texas. I have a question that occurred to me this a.m. during my devotional. In Luke 24:39, during Jesus' post resurrection appearances, He makes the statement that a "...spirit does not have flesh and bone as you see I have...". Flesh and bone, not flesh and blood. Is there any significance to substituting the word 'bone' for 'blood'? Or is it just a grammatical idiom?
On a similar note, Pastor Steve Hadley of Harvest Family Fellowship in Reno, made an interesting observation concerning our glorified bodies. He notes the possibility that the bodies/events of the transfiguration could symbolize the millenium...that is, in the millenium, you have Jesus present, with the raptured saints (Elijah), the dead in Christ (Moses)..all in glorified bodies along with the tribulation saints (Peter, James, John) in their mortal bodies. An interesting thought. Wonder if we'll see each other as 'glowing' or would it be just the mortal who see us as glowing? Anyway, thoughts on bone/blood? Ron
