Who Said That?

"Celestial flesh" was an Anabaptist doctrine, so I expect it will be one of those. I'll pluck the name of Muentzer out of thin air, but that's just picking the most famous Anabaptist I can.

Menno Simons (saddly)

I recall the late Henry Morris of ICR making a similar statement years ago in one of his books. He asserted that because Mary had the sin nature, the human body of Christ could not have been part of her, but was merely created inside of her.

It has to be Menno Simons.

"Celestial Flesh"? Is that what they were trying to capture when they made Jesus glow in "King of Kings"?

The general consensus seems to be an Anabaptist, so I'll guess Jacob Hutter.

I'd say Nestorius.

I'm not absolutely certain, but Menno Simons was also the first name that came to my mind, in accordance with what some of the above have suggested.

Thankfully, Calvin took him to task for this egregious error!

The Celestial flesh view was NOT characteristically Anabaptist per se. It was the view first put forth by Melchior Hoffmann, which Menno sadly took up, along with Dirk Phillips, and, (in my opinion) corrupted his ecclesiology (there is a direct link between a low view of the body and a harsh view of Church discipline in Menno).
