Since Christ's Blood Was Shed, Does His Resurrected Body Still Have Blood?

From the Show

Since the shedding of Christ’s blood was necessary for atonement, does that mean that his resurrected body didn’t have blood in it?

He shed His blood for us, which is just shorthand for, ‘He died for us.’ Now, some will point to 1 Corinthians 15:50, “flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable,” but here again flesh and blood is just shorthand for human beings in their current condition of perishability, as the second clause makes clear. But it's also clear from this passage that it's the same person who was perishable, who now, at the resurrection puts on imperishability. It's not a different person, it's a different condition. So, after his resurrection, Jesus clearly had the same flesh, but it was now imperishable. — Michael Horton

Questions in this Episode

1. How do you understand the Bible verse where it says that we are saved by faith "working through love"?

2. I’m fighting an addiction to smoking. I'm down to a half a cigarette in the morning. Am I going to hell because of it?

3. What is grace defined as biblically? What is common grace and is it real; If all those who are vessels of wrath are filling up the full measure of their sins and all the good they receive is unto their destruction, should we call the good that they receive ‘common grace’ if grace has a strictly salvific notion scripturally?

4.  I'm coming across resources saying that Jesus' resurrection body didn't have any blood because his blood was shed on the cross. Is this a good inference?
