Some say, among the-Fathers, after whose unanimous consent the Church of Rome is bound to interpret the Bible, that his body was an ethereal phantom. Others of the Fathers, with singular inattention to the duty of unanimity, assert that it is not a phantom, but a glorified body; and others assert, what is to us obviously true, that it was just the same body that rose from the tomb that was laid in it, with all the marks, and features, and elements of its perfect identity. This seems to us the obvious and the natural...show more
