What kind of body did Jesus have after He was resurrected? Here is an excerpt from Dr. Fruchtenbaum.

It was the same body that died. This was not a newly created body, but the very same body, which had been placed into the tomb. Secondly, that same body underwent a change, not an absolute, total change, but a major change in many areas. There were enough changes so that He was not recognized immediately; nevertheless, enough elements remained so that He was recognized to be the same Yeshua. Thirdly, the Messiah’s resurrection body was glorified, yet that glory was still veiled during the forty days of post-Resurrection ministry. When He appeared, He looked just like a normal man, as was the case with the women in the garden and with the two disciples on the Emmaus Road. Throughout the forty days of the post-Resurrection ministry, the glory was veiled, but after His Ascension, it was no longer veiled (Phil. 3:21; Rev. 1:12–18).[1]
