The Resurrection Urantia Book Paper 189

The tomb of Joseph was empty, not because the body of Jesus had been rehabilitated or resurrected, but because the celestial hosts had been granted their request to afford it a special and unique dissolution, a return of the “dust to dust,”

without the intervention of the delays of time and without the operation of the ordinary and visible processes of mortal decay and material corruption.

The mortal remains of Jesus underwent the same natural process of elemental disintegration as characterizes all human bodies on earth except that, in point of time, this natural mode of dissolution was greatly accelerated, hastened to that point where it became well-nigh instantaneous.… but we would have his mortal remains put in our custody for immediate dissolution. We do not propose to employ our technique of dematerialization

we merely wish to invoke the process of accelerated time.

Paper 189 Urantia Book

of the Creator and Upholder of a universe. In the name of the celestial intelligences of all


I ask for a mandate giving me the custody of the mortal body of Jesus of Nazareth and empowering us

to proceed with its immediate dissolution.”

None of these watchers suspected that the object of their vigil had risen to a new and higher form of existence

and that the body which they were guarding was now a discarded outer covering which had no further connection with the delivered and resurrected morontia personality  of Jesus
