    Yes, explain those marks in the absence of His stripes.

    As noted above, this is a thread designed to get people to engage in speculation about things that do not matter. Clearly Jesus could appear with marks or without marks as He does as He pleases.

    1 John 3:2 Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.

    Whatever He does, it is always true. If He does not bear those marks in truth, then He showed Thomas a lie, and you would be calling Jesus a liar.

    LOL. Did you just admit that you think Jesus showed Thomas something untrue?

    Yet another insult, another off topic post. And these are claiming to be Christ's ambassadors.

    Moving on...So, we know Jesus bears in His risen body the marks of the nails in His hands, and of the spear in His side. He cannot lie.

    He didn't show them His back, neither does it appear that His face showed any sign of the severe beating He took just three days prior.

    Why those marks, and no others? (It does matter.)

    Remember, that Thomas had "said to them, 'Unless I see in his hands the mark of the nails, and place my finger into the mark of the nails, and place my hand into his side, I will never believe."

    Yes, but I think it would be an error to imply that he bears the marks to convince Thomas.

    Because they are His identity. The Cross was always the point of Creation.

    Crown him the Lord of love;
    behold his hands and side,
    rich wounds, yet visible above,
    in beauty glorified;
    no angel in the sky
    can fully bear that sight,
    but downward bends his wond'ring eye
    at mysteries so bright.

    I see you've cited: "the absence of His stripes" and "neither does it appear that His face showed any sign of the severe beating".

    But didn't He have a crown of thorns on the Cross?

    You really can't be claiming that that the only marks that Jesus' risen body bore were His hands and side? But you are?

    I see Him having those stripes and wounds to show off His glory for what He did for us!

    Christ does not bear the marks because they were inflicted. He bears the marks that God has chosen. They are His identity. I think we are raised whole. No injuries or scars. We are completely changed.
