Does Job 19:26 indicate that the resurrection body will be a body of flesh? (“And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God”)

And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God:

PROBLEM: Satan had afflicted Job’s body, and his flesh was rotting away. However, Job expressed his faith in God by saying, “in my flesh I shall see God” (Job 19:26). Does this mean that the resurrection body will be a body of flesh?

Job 19:26

NKJV - 26 And after my skin is destroyed, this I know, That in my flesh I shall see God.

I would say that (in addition to the words of Job cited in the question) an even more explicit indication of the nature of our resurrected and glorified bodies would be the words of Jesus in Luke 24:39 when He appeared to the apostles after His resurrection, and said to them, "Handle me and see, for a spirit does not have flesh and bones, as you see that I have." Since the Bible indicates that we will be like Christ in eternity (1 John 3:2), that says to me that we will have flesh as He does, except that it will be incorruptible, as His is.
