What is your definition of "zombie"?

I ask because apparently some people are under the impression that Jesus was a "zombie" because he died and rose again. Which makes me figure that anyone that dies and is brought back to life, including through medical science, would also be considered a "zombie". And if that is true then I guess I'm married to a walking, talking, living, breathing "ZOMBIE"!
The actual definition of Zombie...
1 a : the supernatural power that according to voodoo belief may enter into and reanimate a dead body
b : a will-less and speechless human in the West Indies capable only of automatic movement who is held to have died and been supernaturally reanimated
2 a : a person held to resemble the so-called walking dead; especially : automaton
b : a person markedly strange in appearance or behavior
Hmmm... Doesn't sound like Jesus or my husband to me. What about you?

  • Interesting answers.. weird perceptions and beliefs that stem from lack of understanding of the resurrection of Jesus and the Supernatural that comes from Heaven.

    No Jesus was never a zombie... He was and is a spiritual being!
    Was Lazarus a zombie after being raised from the dead after for days? Nope He was perfectly healthy and totally restored! God is a restorer not a destroyer! :-)

  • A person who has died and comes back to life thirsting for human bodies to eat. They will only die by being shot in the head or having the head severed from their body. They are smelly and gross looking and while they don't run, walk mighty fast and will catch up with you before you know it. you can be descended upon by many when you think you've got time to screw around. LMAO!
    I always remember the rules from Zombieland:
    1. Cardio (run in wide circles so that they can't catch up to you)
    2.Bathrooms. Never lock yourself into a tiny stall or other small area!
    3. Double tap. Ensure your zombie is no longer a walking dead, but DEAD!
    4. Wear your seat belt.
    5. Be queit.
    6. Know your way out
    7. DON'T be a here.

    There are more, but those are pretty important.

  • "God is a restorer not a destroyer! :-) "

    Well that isn't entirely true. God DID destroy Sodom and Gomorrah:)

  • Jesus was dead for DAYS and so to comapre him with someone who's heart stopped beating for five minutes on the opperating table is absurd. A Zombie is technically the soul-less dead who are conjured back to life by a sorcerer in order to be a slave- as in Haitian Voodoo culture. Flesh eating monsters did exist before zombies were around and they were usually called ghouls. The term ghoul comes from the Arabic word “guhl” which means “demon.” Demons in that part of the world were thought to disguise themselves, lure people to the middle of nowhere and devour their flesh.

  • A zombie is an animated corpse. I don't believe that Gee-Whiz came back to life as which the fact that once a human is dead, especially for 3 days, and then reanimates; it is either a ZOMBIE --the walking dead etc.-- or the person was never dead to begin with.

  • Zombie is freaky looking dude who makes wicked music and kick-ass movies! Especially House of a 1000 Corpses.

    Correction to the Zombieland Rules: (sorry, just have to make sure everyone has them right in the event of a zombie apocalypse)

    1. Cardio
    2. DOUBLE-TAP (really the most important rule when dealing with dispatching zombies)
    3. Beware of bathrooms
    4. Wear seatbelts
    5.No attachments
    6. The skillet
    7. Travel light
    8. Get a kick ass partner

  • Kerp and I seldom see eye to eye, but acknowledging that Jewish Zombie was written initially to be rude is a great point and well taken!
