John 20:[17] Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God.
[18] Mary Magdalene came and told the disciples that she had seen the Lord, and that he had spoken these things unto her


Perhaps Jesus was wearing something when he appeared to the deciples later, but when Mary first saw Jesus (and thought him to be the gardener) it would seem the most logical conclusion be that he was still nude since the grave clothes were in the tomb and he had not yet ascended to Heaven.

I think Jesus was naked after he came out of the tomb. Since his clothes had been taken by the soldiers, crucified naked, and then wrapped in cloth for burial, and left that in the tomb. And since he had never performed a miracle for his own benefit, it is unlikely that he created a robe for himself. However once he ascended to meet with his father, (personal confirmation that his sacrifice was accepted it would seem) he may have been given garments there. An indication that agriculture workers commonly worked naked is given in Matt. 24:18 along with the inference that Jesus expected his followers to run naked cross country until they found lodging and clothes elsewhere if they happened to be working in the field when the news reached them of the sign of Jerusalem's destruction. It's been said by people who can't get their mind past the naked = lust connection, that such references to naked are really just outer robe removed and loin cloth retained. However I have no reason to think that to be the case. And that working completely naked was common. Just as it was common in Roman times to bathe naked in public baths. People like to interpret things according to their own customs and values instead of looking at customs as they were when it was written.

And in reference to ourselves after the resurrection, I've come to ascertain, by way of some very vivid dreams being given to a certain man over the last 11 years, that we will be given a robe and crown both of which will seem weightless, and which will be for wear on special occasions, as in Sabbath services, as a visible symbol of the righteousness of Christ and our own victory over sin. But for the rest of the time clothing is not necessarily used, but there would obviously be no feeling of embarrassment since that began with sin and ends with the elimination of sin. Instead there is an energy field that surrounds us, (invisible except as light, which has been called a robe of light, but may not be an actual opaque robe) which serves as a perfect diving suit and space suit, having perfect anti gravity function with our mind in full control of direction and speed of travel, and with infinite speed capability. No need for automobiles or flying machines to get around quickly. With a city to live in that's about equal to half the area of the USA, occupied by all of God's angels, and everyone from earth who's found worthy to have eternal life. And everyone getting together every week for a common service in a massive amphitheater. The Father and Jesus as leading pastors. The angel Gabriel serving as head elder and choir leader.

The picture we are given in the Bible is that at the time of Jesus second coming and resurrection of all the righteous dead, we are taken to live in that city. 1000 years later we all return to planet earth with Jesus, the city follows and settles down centered at the site of old Jerusalem. All the wicked are then resurrected to meet their judgment and destruction,(which according to many passages is terminal, only the results are eternal, not the fire itself. Consider Ps.37:10 "For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be: yea, thou shalt diligently consider his place, and it shall not be." Mal.4:3 "And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the LORD of hosts.") The earth is then recreated and occupied by the righteous people, between the recreation and the work of God's people over time, the world is transformed to being like the Garden of Eden all the way around. The promise fulfilled which states. "They shall build houses and inhabit them, they shall plant vineyards and eat the fruit of them."
