Hi Andrew, when Paul says in 2 Cor. 5 that he would prefer to be away from the body and at home with the Lord, doesn’t he undermine the value of the body to some extent?

Great question. Actually, you’ll notice that he does not wish to be “unclothed” – in other words, he does not wish to be without a body. This has led some to speculate that at death Christians are granted some sort of temporary body until our final body at the resurrection.
