Now this is an interesting idea. It was in a post by mexangl716 on Yahoo! Answers:
53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.

54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. KJV

When we are alive on this earth, our bodies are the home of our souls. The body is on the outside with the soul on the inside. The above text seems to indicate (as least to me) that in the resurrection, our bodies will become in some way housed by our souls. The word translated "put on" appears more than 25 times in the New Testament, and almost always refers to the wearing or putting on of apparel.

Now note verse 53 -- this corruptible (our bodies) must put on (as clothing) incorruption (our souls), and this mortal (our bodies) must put on (as clothes) immortality (our souls).
I'm rather hesitant to buy into this idea, but it's certainly something to chew on.
