    We are told that Jesus was in Heaven first and actually created the world (in one religion) then his father, who was very close to Jesus, sent him down to Earth to fix a problem with the system.

    Jesus became a little baby (for some inexplicable reason), grew up, just like a human in the Jewish faith (for another inexplicable reason), got very popular with everybody except a few Jewish leaders who decided to persuade the Romans to arrest him. Suddenly, after a short trial that was inconclusive, everybody (apart from a few mates) wanted him to be executed and the Romans reluctantly agreed.

    So he died and went back up to Heaven, but 36 hours later (according to one story), he had to come back down again to re-animate his body, which was waiting in a cave. He then met up with his mates and eat some fish (according to one story), then died again (for no particular reason) and went back up to Heaven (again).

    He had famously said to his mates, "I'll be back". But I guess that by this time, after all the down/up traveling between the two world systems, that he got fed up and decided to stay in Heaven, which is probably a good decision, given the way he was treated in this sin-ridden dump.

    The puzzle, that hasn't been solved, is what happened to his body?

    We know it must have stayed in the material world, not the spooky spirit world.

    It is very odd that his mates neglected to tell us what happened to it.
    Was it put back in the cave? Was it buried?
    Why didn't they set up a memorial at the burial site?

    You really should try reading the Bible before posting such nonsense.

    After the resurrection, Jesus didn't "die again". He ascended bodily into Heaven, so there's no mystery about what happened to the body.

    How do we know that heaven is where he went?

    There is some confusion as to where heaven is however. Is it in the sky, outer space or is it a spiritual places. If it's a spiritual place then a physical body couldn't be co located there.

    I think there was a smoke and mirrors light show for the people of Earth and then the body was cremated with the ashes sprinkled into the sea.

    Isn't Heaven a spirit realm ? Nobody allowed !

    Actually, I believe the simple solution is that his body stayed on the cross until it rotted and picked clean by wild animals and during this process, the bones fell off and ended up mixed with all the rubbish or thrown in a pit and buried along with general detritus.

    The resurrection stories were tagged on, so that the prophecy of Jesus it might be fulfilled, just like lots of other fulfillments.
    We know Christians edited the gospel of Mark and that some of Paul's letters are forgeries.

    After the resurrection, He walked around bodily, was seen by many people, had Thomas test his wounds, etc. There is no question that the body was there. When he ascended to heaven, a cloud hid His body from sight. That doesn't sound like a spiritual ascension.

    The whole story is fiction, even if it may have some basis in history. You have to take the story as it is, not try to reconcile it with reality.

    You are referring to an old problem. The Bible clearly says that Jesus went up to Heaven and doesn't distinguish between his physical body and his spirit. On the Cross, Jesus gave up his soul, but it didn't die. Only his body died. His body came back to life and his soul must have come back. There is some evidence that he didn't look the same, because sometimes his followers didn't recognize him. True, there are difficulties in the Text, but remember that the Text was written by men who had thoughts about what happened. Anybody can think and thoughts can be mistaken or incomplete. We can only hope that the truth will be known.

    There is no evidence. And there probably won't be any forthcoming. The bible wasn't written by anyone who saw it happen.

    The body of Christ was eaten by the disciples at the 'real' last supper. This is why when you goto church they encourage you to 'eat' and drink the 'body of Christ'.

    And yes I'm making it up... much like the people who wrote the Bible
