The Godhead – Jesus Christ

 

 

The prints of nails in the hands and feet of the resurrected body of Jesus are only temporary

 

 

 

Mormons teach that one day the prints of nails in the hands and feet of the body with which Jesus was raised from the dead are only temporary. Here is what we read in the Encyclopedia of Mormonism (New York-Toronto 1992, vol. 2, page 734): ‘In his resurrected state, Jesus retained the prints of nails in his hands and feet as a special manifestation to the world. Such marks, however, are only temporary. After all have confessed that he is the Christ, his resurrected body, will, like those of all mankind, be restored to its ‘proper and perfect frame’ (Alma 40:23)

 

Confutation

 

The body with which Jesus was raised from the dead was (and still is) immortal, glorious and incorruptible, and thus it does not need to be restored to ‘its proper and perfect frame’ as the Mormons say. The fact that the prints of nails were in the hands and feet of His resurrected body when He appeared to His disciples indicates that they will remain in this glorious body forever. Let no one deceive you.
