A: We received a hostile email from someone who referred to Jesus as a “cosmic Jewish zombie.” This line is one of many used by skeptics attempting to make our faith sound like a fairy tale, but it really makes them look foolish.
Jesus did come in the flesh as a Jew, so that part is correct. As for the zombie line, anyone who says that has clearly not taken the time to look at the vast differences between a zombie and the resurrected Christ. Zombies are considered to be part of the undead (not alive), often will-less and speechless bodies that have been reanimated by spirits.
The resurrected Christ is not undead, but alive (Revelation 1:18). After His Resurrection, He spoke with His followers and taught them (Luke 24:25–27), reassured them (Luke 24:36–39), and commanded them (Matthew 28:18–20). He ate food with them (Luke 24:43; John 21:15) and urged them to touch Him to see that He was not a ghost but truly risen from the dead bodily (Luke 24:39). He also had a will (John 21:22–23) and performed miracles (Luke 24:31; John 21:6).
