JESUS: Almighty God: JESUS Physically Rose from the Dead

13: And the Jews' Passover was at hand and Jesus went up to Jerusalem 14: And found in the temple those who sold oxen and sheep and doves and the changers of money sitting 15: And when he had made a scourge of small cords he drove them all out of the temple and the sheep and the oxen and poured out the changers' money and overthrew the tables 16: And said to them that sold doves Take these things from here make not my Father's house a house of merchandise 17: And his disciples remembered that it was written The zeal of thine house has eaten me up 18: Then answered the Jews and said to him, What sign do you show to us seeing that you do these things 19: Jesus answered and said to them Destroy this temple and in three days I will raise it up[1] 20: Then said the Jews Forty and six years was this temple in building and wilt you raise it up in three days 21: But he spoke of the temple of his body

[1] This was a clear reference to both his identity as the Almighty—YHWH—and to his physical resurrection. Both of these facts are attested to in many other scriptures including 2 Timothy 3:16 (Received Text) and Acts 2:31. Jesus stated that he would raise his own body up. Only God could do such a thing.  In verse :21, it very clearly states that the resurrection would be a physical one. It would be his body that was raised from the dead.
