Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Luke 24:39-43

_ _ Behold, etc. — lovingly offering them both ocular and tangible demonstration of the reality of His resurrection.

_ _ a spirit hath not — an important statement regarding “spirits.”

_ _ flesh and bones — He says not “flesh and blood”; for the blood is the life of the animal and corruptible body (Genesis 9:4), which “cannot inherit the kingdom of God” (1 Corinthians 15:50); but “flesh and bones,” implying the identity, but with diversity of laws, of the resurrection body. (See on John 20:24-28).
