This is an interesting question. I think the simplest way to answer would be to tell him that zombies are dead. They are mindless and incapable of complex thought. Jesus however brought himself back and was completely alive... capable of complex thought and interaction.

Thank you angrymonkey, I always appreciate your input. It's not often you come across someone so capable of defending their beliefs with such knowledge and conviction

The answer is no. Zombies are just moving corpses. A resurrected person, in Christian thought, is fully alive with body and soul united and intact.

But corpses are dead things, once you've been dead you only become undead because you once were

That's what makes resurrection different. It is not simply reanimation of the matter but a complete restoration to life.

Neither am I. My son attends catholic school and I want to give him a fair chance and want to provide answers that don't impact his progress at school. My answer of "technically yes if you believe in either" would do him no good

When my daughter was about 8 she asked if we were cannibals because the wafer we eat during communion are supposed to represent the body of Christ. It took some explaining about representation and symbolism.

Excellent example. In my eyes children are never too young to be challenged. This is a great example of how children can build greater understandings from their ability to question. A winning parent has a child that questions and understands answers. Nobody wants to raise a minion

Dazzer I extremely respect that, that's honestly amazing but, if you're gonna give him the choice of religion, give him the choice of denomination as well, see if you can't find a non-denominational church school for him. Catholicism isn't as great as it once was.
I'm not telling you how to raise your child though. It's just a suggestion.

I like the idea of a belief system that owns its beliefs and is not governed by shared or enforced thought.

...Catholicism is enforced thou- whatever. Your child, your life, not mine. Do as you wish. Nice meme, keep up the good work.

I hope that didn't come across as dismissive I meant I like the idea of non denominational as it complies with no higher authority

Don't forget he's only 5 lol. I read it more as he was back from the dead as a ghost seen over a 40 day period by various people. A complete restoration to life would have had him visible by even the least divine

Oh, sure. This "Zombie Jesus" thing is just such a common meme that you may as well have a answer. I would point out the difference between the way zombies act and the way Jesus acted and ask him what the difference is.

In addition, the person is perfected and incorruptible, no longer subject to death.

Not the second either. Jesus is recorded as raising at least two other people, and there are Old Testament cases as well.
These cases are different, though, in that they died again later. In that they are more like patients resuscitated after flatlining, though perhaps after being "dead" much longer.

A corpse seems to be the key in this example. Now our understanding of corpse

noun: corpse; plural noun: corpses
a dead body, especially of a human being rather than an animal. This is where it becomes relatable to one that walked the earth

I'm just saying that you can point out the definition of zombie that does not say anything about a corpse. Either way, this definition has the corpse kind of zombie as "not capable of rational thought"

The definitions that don't involve the dead don't make any sense, though. The original question came up because Jesus was dead, but was later seen walking around.

I thought he appeared to various significant people over a 40 day period?

That's what I meant by "later seen walking around."

Later seen walking around is different from appearing to people. This gives the idea of a spiritual presence
