Does anyone have insight into why Jesus' PTWMA is not translated as
"corpse"? A PTWMA is not exactly the same thought as English "body." What is
the best translation of PTWMA?

NAB Matthew 14:12 His disciples came and took away the corpse [PTWMA] and
buried him; and they went and told Jesus.

NAB Matthew 24:28 "Wherever the corpse [PTWMA] is, there the vultures will

NAB Mark 15:45 And when he learned of it from the centurion, he gave the
body [PTWMA] to Joseph.

Thank you,
Wes Williams
