Knowing Christ After the Flesh

Q & A with Fr Job:
Question: How should one understand the words of the Apostle Paul “... though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we Him no more” (2 Cor 5:16).

Answer: After His birth Jesus Christ, in His human nature, communed with natural life: he breathed, ate food, was in need of rest and sleep. The Risen Jesus, although still in the flesh, in His transfigured body already did not follow the nature rules of our flesh. This is what the holy Apostle Paul had in mind.
