Jesus was a spirit

In Jn. 20:22, Jesus gives the Spirit (pneuma) to the disciples, a bit
difficult if He had none to share.


So presumably when tongues of fire 'appeared' (same word as when jesus appeared) from Heaven , there was real fire from Heaven that could be spared. Strange how all these 'appeareds' in the NT almost always refer to non-physical visions. I doubt if the disciples heads were really on fire.

Jesus breathed on them. When I claimed that the Gospels said jesus was flesh and blood, I hardly meant that his breath was flesh and blood.

It was the Holy Spirit 'hagios pneuma' that Jesus breathed on them. The adjective is rather important. It makes it hard to understand if you accidentally leave important stuff out.

Was Jesus really made of the Holy Spirit, according to the NT? I would say no, he did not breathe the Holy Ghost on them because he had some Holy Ghost inside him. Your opinion might vary from mine though.
