As a follow up to the previous question - Does God sleep?, I felt the need to ask the second part of the question separately.

When Jesus was on earth, He was fully human and He could feel pain, He needed food, He needed to sleep, He could get tired and He could die.

After the resurrection, is Jesus still human? If so, Jesus might be sleeping right now in Heaven (and whenever there is a storm, his disciples would wake him up and Jesus would calm the storm with his hand).

Please try to answer this using Bible verses and if not possible, from the perspective of any denomination or theologians.

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

of course is true human, and true God, as He was – Малъ Скрылевъ Feb 4 '14 at 6:19
@МалъСкрылевъ Don't you think there is a difference before and after His resurrection? – Mawia Feb 4 '14 at 6:22
of course, there is the difference: we could interpret that the new thing is the resurrected Christ's body, which is not feel pain, sorrow, hunger, able to pass via closed doors [John.20:19], which can't be recognized by the apprentices [John.20:14], and etc. – Малъ Скрылевъ Feb 4 '14 at 6:25
(Reference data point: how would a Mormon answer this question? The way you have it framed, their interpretation of cosmology, other worlds and God having a body would be a valid answer, as would one from an Unitarian who believes Christ was just a good man who died and turned to dust. Such and answer competition should be specifically excluded by a proper question framing.) – Caleb Feb 4 '14 at 11:54
@TheFreemason Right. I remember Enoch and Elijah. They are still in human form but they might not need to sleep in Heaven. This topic is really getting complicated than I thought. – Mawia Feb 4 '14 at 15:15
