The Maternal and Paternal Human (Continued)

As the Lord’s Human was glorified, that is, made Divine, therefore After death He rose again on the third day with the whole Body; which is not the case with any man; for a rises again only as to his spirit, but not as his body. That man might know, and no one doubt, that the Lord rose again with the whole Body, He not only said it by the angels who were in the sepulchre, but also showed Himself in his Human Body before the disciples; saying to them, when they believed that they saw a spirit, “See my hands and my feet, that it is I myself; feel of me, and see: for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as you as me have. And when He has said this, He showed them his hands and his feet” (Luke 24:39-40; John 20:20, 27-28).

Since his Body was not now material, but Divine-substantial, He therefore came in to the disciples “while the doors were shut” (John 20:19, 26); and after He had been seen, “He became invisible” (Luke 24:31). The Lord being now such, was taken up, and sat at the right hand of God (Luke 24:51; Mark 16:19). To “sit at the right hand of God” signifies Divine Omnipotence.
