Why do we believe in the resurrection of the ‘body’?

In Jesus Christ, God himself took on “flesh” in order to redeem mankind. The biblical word “flesh” characterizes man in his weakness and mortality. Nevertheless, God does not regard human flesh as something inferior. God does not redeem man’s spirit only; he redeems him entirely, body and soul. God created us with a body and soul. At the end of the world he does not drop the “flesh” like an old toy. On the “last day” he will remake all creation and raise us up in the flesh- this means that we will be transformed but still experience ourselves in our element. For Jesus too being in the flesh was not just a phase. When the risen Lord showed himself, the disciples saw the wounds in the body.
