NT THEO 220-02 Philippians 2:5-11; 1 Corinthians 15; Mark 16:1-8; Matthew 28; Luke 24; John 20; Mark 16:9-19; John 21 (Resurrection Accounts) The resurrection accounts in Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, Philippians, and 1 Corinthians have many similarities, even if it’s just shared between a few of the Gospels.

From this, I gather that Jesus did not necessarily come back in human form, but perhaps took a spiritual or angelic shape. There is no way to answer this, but I wonder what he actually returned as. The passages make me have contradicting views on it. For instance, Luke 24 says “Jesus appears in their midst”, which alludes that he just showed up, almost supernaturally. This makes me think he returned as a spirit. However, in John 20, Mary Magdalene didn’t recognize Jesus at first, mistaking him for a gardener. This obviously hints that Jesus was in human form since there is no way someone would think a spirit was a gardener....
