    On or about from 4 BC to on or about passover 30 AD was Jesus on the earth as a living soul?

    Four days after that passover was Jesus a living soul?

    Is a living soul a flesh and blood person, that has been born of the flesh?

    Was Jesus a flesh and blood, living soul, prior to his death? What was he for the three days and three nights he was dead? What was he after the Father resurrected him from the dead?

    Yes, Jesus was flesh and blood just like you and me for the 33 years of His ministry. After death, His Spirit went to Paradise, His body remained in the grave for 3 days. Upon His ascension to heaven, He received a glorified body. Read John's description in Revelation 1.
    Now He is the firstborn of the dead. We will follow Him in like manor. Our spirit goes to heaven to be with the Lord. Our body remains in the grave until it is resurrected and we will receive a glorified, uncorruptible body like Christ's.

    I am not sure I understand the question - how do you define 'a living soul.' In the incarnation God the son added humanity to his deity, that means he was a man (body and soul).

    do you mean in his resurrection? Well yes he was!

    I don't know because I do not know how you are using the term soul which has a wide semantic range.

    In the incarnation the Son became the Godman so he was body and soul, in his physical death (which followed his 'spiritual death' and 'eternal death' on the cross) his body and soul were seperated for a time, and then in the resurrection they were reunited. In this way he becomes the first vfruits of the reusrrection having passed through the intermediate state into the resurrection.
