We understand that once Jesus shed his blood that meant he died in the old Adam.
Blood equals death of the old body. He was raised as a life-giving spirit, kept his identity without blood anymore, But raised as a spiritual body.
Flesh and blood represents the natural man. Man made from soil with blood. Jesus bore a human body made of flesh and blood. Once he shed His blood he died to the soulish man. He was raised without blood but continues to keep His own bones. Bones seem to represent the essence of a person. We can see why it's was so important for Joseph to have his bones carried by Moses into the land and be buried there.
Moses took the bones of Joseph with him, for Joseph had made the sons of Israel solemnly swear, saying, “God will surely visit you, and you shall carry up my bones with you from here.”
Op asks' "Does the Bible distinguish between flesh and blood"and flesh and bones?
What or who or what grouping
do each represent?
Flesh and blood represents the natural man. Man made from soil with blood. Jesus bore a human body made of flesh and blood. Once he shed His blood he died to the soulish man. He was raised without blood but seemed to be clothed in flesh along with His bones intact. This was a glorified man that was raised up out of the dead. Not a spirit.
Flesh and bones represent the spiritual man. The one that's been raised.
"The analogy given in Corinthians show that a seed is planted, dies and is raised with a new life… The original is still there without blood. The perishable bones and flesh now puts on the imperishable with a life-giving spirit… Blood is no longer needed to sustain this spiritual life that can still be seen. It is not a spirit floating around. It is now a body with God's Spirit sustaining and living inside
The dead will be raised imperishable, and we shall be changed. (1 Cor 15:52–53).
The change is one from flesh and blood.
We move from a “perishable body” to an imperishable body. We move from a “mortal body” to an immortal body.
"This means by “flesh and blood.” signifies a corrupt and mortal existence.
Flesh and blood is just shorthand for human beings in their current condition of perishability,
Its also clear from this passage that it's the same person who was perishable, who now, at the resurrection puts on imperishability.
It's not a different person, it's a different condition. So, after his resurrection, Jesus clearly had the same flesh, but it was now imperishable. — Michael Horton
So we see flesh and blood will never be reigning in the kingdom of God which is symbolic of the corruption.
And this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood the reign of God is not able to inherit, nor doth the corruption inherit the incorruption; 1 Corinthians 15:50
Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have.
There is also is a very powerful statement and is filled with so much meaning that parallels Adam and Eve's existence concerning flesh and bones.
because we are members of his body, of his flesh and bones
Here are some interesting thoughts that go along with this subject by John Piper
"Scripture states, "I declare to you, brothers and sisters, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable." - I Cor 15:50.
Jesus’ own words showed that he would not be resurrected with his flesh-and-blood body. He said that he would give his “flesh on behalf of the life of the world,” as a ransom for mankind. (John 6: 51; Matthew 20:28) If he had taken back his flesh when he was resurrected, he would have canceled that ransom sacrifice. This could not have happened, though, for the Bible says that he sacrificed his flesh and blood “once for all time".
“These two statements parallel each other, so that the phrase ‘flesh and blood’ corresponds to ‘perishability.’
Together the terms refer to the present mortal body in respect to the perishability of its flesh and blood, not in respect to the physicality of its flesh and blood. For Paul proceeds to say that it is ‘this perishable body’ that will be put on imperishability and ‘this mortal body’ that will put on immortality (1 Cor. 15:51-55, esp. v. 53). And since for Paul the resurrection of Christians will follow the pattern of Christ’s resurrection…Paul must have thought that when Christ was raised, it was the perishable, mortal body of his earthly lifetime that put on imperishable and immortality, not that he was exalted to heaven in some nonphysical form.”
There is also evidence that Paul saw continuity between our bodies today and our bodies after the resurrection. In fact, the major theme in verses 35-58 is the continuity and discontinuity between our earthly and resurrected bodies. He says in 1 Corinthians 15:37-38: “When you sow, you do not plant the body that will be, but just a seed, perhaps of wheat or of something else. But God gives it a body as he has determined, and to each kind of seed he gives its own body.”
Paul draws on common knowledge about the differences between what is planted and what is sowed. They are different, but there is also continuity. We must also realize that Moses and Elijah were recognizable at the Transfiguration, thus showing that there was continuality between their earthly existence and heavenly one (Luke 9:30, 33). Matthew 8:11 says that people will come from all over to “sit at the table with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven.” Apparently there will be enough continuality between Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob’s earthly and heavenly bodies so we can recognize them.
Fourth, Philippians 3:20-1 says that our earthly body is transformed into conformity with Christ's body in the resurrection, not that God creates a new body from scratch: "For our citizenship is in heaven, from which also we eagerly wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ; who will transform the body of our humble state into conformity with the body of His glory, by the exertion of the power that He has even to subject all things to Himself."
Fifth, Jesus speaks of the resurrection as involving the coming forth out of tombs, which strongly indicates that the resurrection
Sixth, Paul's statement "it is sown a perishable body, it is raised an imperishable body" (1 Corinthians 15:42) establishes that there is a continuity between our current body and our resurrected body, for it is the same "it" in both cases.
Seventh, verse 53 indicates that the same body we have now (which is mortal), will become immortal: "For this perishable must put on the imperishable, and this mortal must put on immortality."
We will have transformed bodies
In 1 Corinthians 15:35-37, it may appear as if Paul is teaching that we are raised with a different body than which we had on earth: "...what you sow is not made alive unless it dies. And what you sow, you do not sow the body that shall be, but mere grain." But upon examining the whole context, we see that Paul is not denying that it will be the same body. Instead, he is affirming that in the resurrection our bodies will be made better than the state they are now in.
In fact, this passage teaches a continuity between our bodies now and in the resurrected state by using the analogy from agriculture. Paul compares the resurrection of the body to the growth of a plant from a seed. The plant that results is definitely much better than the seed, just as our resurrection bodies will be better than those we have now. But there is also a real continuity between the seed and the plant, for they are the same organism. The same seed that was sown becomes the plant that grows. Likewise, the same body we have now becomes our resurrected body. But just as the plant is a result of the seed being transformed into something with better capacities and qualities, so also in the resurrection our bodies will receive better qualities and capacities. Thus, when Paul says that we do not yet have the body that shall be, he means that our current bodies are not yet in their glorified and improved state (see verses 42-44). They are not as they will be.
