Q. 408. What do we mean when we say Christ rose “glorious” from the dead?
A. When we say Christ rose “glorious” from the dead we mean that His body was in a glorified state; that is, gifted with the qualities of a glorified body.
**Q. 409. What are the qualities of a glorified body?
A. The qualities of a glorified body are:

- Agility, by which it moves from place to place as rapidly as an angel;
- Subtility, by which material things cannot shut it out;
- Impassibility, by which it is made incapable of suffering.
