What will our physical age be in the afterlife?

So, from the fact that Jesus was resurrected in a physical body, we can infer that the afterlife will be a physical state too, not just a spiritual one. But how old will our physical bodies be there?
The fact that the resurrected Jesus looked the same as before his death can mean 3 things:
-We will all be 33.
-We will all be in the physical age we were when we died (in that case, I guess it sucks to die in an old age).
-We will all be in our prime (25 or so). Jesus probably came back as an 25 year old man but no one noticed the difference.
What do you think?

These Qs have been answered in 1 Cor 15:35-58. Flesh & blood does not inherit the kingdom of God.

In eternal life there will be no age barriers. We will enjoy the thrill of God's kind of life forever - in no physical body. It won't pay to speculate on what it will look like.

Stick with the fundamentals of 1 Cor 15.

I think that sums it up for me.
I have heard people call God 'the invisible God.' I think that is because we know of God's Spirit. Bit I believe God is visible too. Scripture tells us 'Let us make man in our image.' For Gid to have an image He must be visible. So I believe we will have an incorruptible body and spirit.

You contradict Scripture which states in Col 1:15 & 1Tim 1:17 he is the invisible God.

This contains a lot of speculation. Please stick with what 1 Cor 15 tells us about the resurrected body.

I think we can all agree me with that.
Are you thinking it's wrong ro wonder what it will be like?

I consider it's wrong to speculate about the eternal 'body' outside of the facts from Scripture.

Oz,
Can you explain to me what is meant by 'Let us make man In our image?'
Can I answer that?
We are made in the image of the spiritual God, since God is spirit.
God doesn't have to shave or get a haircut.
God doesn't wear a suit and tie, tough many think he does.
God has personality, a sense of humor, he smiles in his spirit.
He creates, he designs, he molds and makes his children.
There are many more aspects of God that are in us as well.
But getting up in the morning and wondering if he should take a shower is not one of them.

Let's not forget, this is the Questions From Seekers forum where seekers (nonbelievers) may ask questions and CFnet Christians can answer. We don't want to confuse the issue with debates between us so let's just stick with answering the OP's questions. If you wish to debate or discuss specific differences of opinion please start a new thread in the appropriate forum. Thanks.

That sounds so cool! Do you have an agent or publisher yet?
Yes. We are in the cover design stage. We just got back our second cover design proposal from the publisher. We want a few more corrections then the book will move to production/distribution. The process will drag out until about June/July at this point best we can tell.
