But God Can’t Have a Body, Can He?


“God is a spirit…” (John 4:24a PDRC)


Yet the God of Uncreated Spirit took on flesh in this world after He created it:


“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God All things were made by him: and without him was made nothing that was made… And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us…” (John 1:1, 3, 14a-b PDRC, highlighting added)


The “Word… made flesh” is the God Who became a Man, Jesus Christ. So, yes, God both can and does have a Body in this created world of ours, and even though He is, before creating everything, solely an Eternal Spirit.
