Question: Many thanks for posting the question. You have however not answered it I think. Heb. 2:14 merely asserts that Jesus took flesh, but does not specify what kind of flesh. There are two kinds of flesh the apostle Paul says in 1Cor 15. Heavenly flesh and dust-flesh. My question is: did Jesus have perishable dust-flesh (like all humans) or imperishable heavenly flesh (as in Joh 6:51) according to you? God bless, Br Johannes from Den Haag, Netherlands.

Answer: Hebrews 2:14 does much more than merely assert that Jesus took flesh; it says, 'Inasmuch then as the children have partaken of flesh and blood, He Himself likewise shared in the same.' This verse states plainly that Jesus shared in the SAME flesh and blood as the children. It was not a different kind of flesh and blood, it was human flesh and blood, fearfully and wonderfully made in the womb of a woman, just like all the rest of us. I think that much is chrystal clear for this verse. Of course, now that Jesus has been raised from the dead, He is alive forevermore. In that sense He is imperishable.
