Body is always required, except that in eternity, one goes from "human body" to "pneumatikon soma" (1Co 15).
You never become an angel, whether or not you live in Los Angeles :). A human being is always someBODY.
"The soul" is the person, the human being; or, more specifically, the life in the human being (body). It is not expressed unless there is a body. Bodies hold and express souls.
Spirit comes the Latin word spiritus, breath. Just as we are not physically alive unless we can breathe, we need Heavenly breath (spirit) from GOD to form our Heavenly life and our pneumatikon soma ("spiritual body")
"At the resurrection people will neither marry nor be given in marriage; they will be like the angels in heaven."
:heaven: I will be a spirit in heavens, so I don't need a mansion or a horse, I will be flying here and there between GOD, Angels, and other Spirits.....:gopray2:
