Do Mormons belive that Jesus rose from the dead in a physical body?

-I have never heard or been asked, before I responded to this question, if Mormons believed in the literal resurrection of Christ. We have been criticized for believing that he was literally resurrected.
After Christ’s resurrection he appeared to his disciples and they were afraid. He said, “handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have.” –Luke 24:39
Christ appeared to the ancient Americans shortly after his resurrection and commanded them to touch him (similar to Thomas, John 20:27).
“And it came to pass that the multitude went forth, and thrust their hands into his side, and did feel the prints of the nails in his hands and in his feet; and this they did do, going forth one by one until they had all gone forth, and did see with their eyes and did feel with their hands, and did know of a surety and did bear record, that it was he, of whom it was written by the prophets, that should come.” -3rd Nephi 11:15
We absolutely believe in the literal resurrection of Jesus Christ.
