After Jesus died on the cross, He rose from the dead as an immortal resurrected man. Not only did Jesus resurrect, but he brought resurrection to all who take on a body on this earth, both the just and the unjust. So why in your opinion do you think that resurrecting to an immortal body of flesh and bones to live forever is so important to our salvation?

Resurrection

The Resurrection consists in the uniting of a spirit body with a body of flesh and bones, never again to be divided. The Resurrection shall come to all, because of Christ’s victory over death. Jesus Christ was the first to be resurrected on this earth (Matt. 27:52–54; Acts 26:23; 1 Cor. 15:23; Col. 1:18; Rev. 1:5). Others had been brought back from death but were restored to mortality (Mark 5:22–43; Luke 7:11–17; John 11:1–45), whereas a resurrection means to become immortal, with a body of flesh and bone.
All will not be raised to the same glory in the Resurrection (1 Cor. 15:39–42; D&C 76), nor will all come forth at the same time (see 1 Cor. 15:23; Alma 40:8). Christ was first; the righteous have precedence over the wicked and come forth in the First Resurrection, whereas the unrepentant sinners come forth in the last resurrection (Rev. 20:5–13).
The New Testament gives ample evidence that Jesus rose with His physical body: He ate fish and honey (Luke 24:42–43); He said He had flesh and bones (Luke 24:39); the people touched Him (Luke 24:39–40; John 20:25–29); the tomb was empty (Luke 24:2–3; John 20:1–10); and the angels said He had risen (Mark 16:1–6).
One of the most fundamental doctrines taught by the Twelve was that Jesus was risen from the tomb, with His glorified, resurrected body, as in Acts 1:21–22; 2:32; 3:15; 4:33. To obtain a resurrection with a celestial, exalted body is the center point of hope in the gospel of Jesus Christ. The Resurrection of Jesus is the most glorious of all messages to mankind.
Latter-day revelation confirms the reality of the Resurrection of Christ and of all mankind, as in Alma 11:41–45; 40; 3 Ne. 11; D&C 76; Moses 7:62.
 
In Latter-day scripture we learn that having our spirits combined with elements can bring about a fullness of joy:

Doctrine and Covenants 93:33-34
33 For man is spirit. The elements are eternal, and spirit and element, inseparably connected, receive a fulness of joy;
34 And when separated, man cannot receive a fulness of joy.

If Jesus and all the rest of mankind will be resurrected with immortal bodies of flesh and bones, would not the Father also have an immortal body of flesh and bones?

I believe Arnold will be the only one to come back as Arnold. Sorry Lemmi, but you will come back as yourself.
 
After having a body of flesh and bones we may not enjoy being separated from our bodies after death but before the resurrection:

Doctrine and Covenants 138:50
50 For the dead had looked upon the long absence of their spirits from their bodies as a bondage.

Which bible and when ?

The bible hasn't always been around.....nor is it complete.

When is your devotion to static scripture going to teach you that the formation of the bible is, in fact, a testament of ongoing prophets and God's dealing with people ?

Jesus has a body through the incarnation. Jesus and the Father are One. Are you saying that the Father, without a body, is somehow incomplete?

Nope, I'm saying that the Father also has an immortal body of flesh and bones and receives a fullness of joy.
