Of course, but the Gospels have a Jesus who still had wounds.

Hard to reconcile with the Epistles idea of our body as a tent or clothing that will be discarded come the Resurrection.

2 Corinthians 5:6 Therefore we are always confident and know that as long as we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord.

Paul can hardly have taught the Corinthians that after the resurrection they would still be in the same body which went into the ground.

2 Peter 1
13 I think it is right to refresh your memory as long as I live in the tent of this body, 14 because I know that I will soon put it aside, as our Lord Jesus Christ has made clear to me.

Could the Lord Jesus Christ really have taught that the tent of our bodies will be put aside and then given back to us in a resurrected form?

Surely the author of 2 Peter has no conception that the resurrected body which comes out of the ground will be the body which went into the ground.

He thinks a resurrected body is a different body.

Finally, the author of 1 Clement proves the resurrection by pointing out that when a Phoenix resurrects, the old bones are still there. Therefore, a discarded body proves a resurrection.

What empty tomb?
