comment How does Judaism reconcile God cannot be seen/incarnate/etc. with Pilar of Fire story?
It'd be great if you could provide sources and a clarifcation of what you mean by "opaque" vs "see-through."

comment In Judaism, does God have a body?
Many of the Rishonim speak of "other scholars" who believed in God's Corporeality in some fashion, but don't provide details. One Rishon who viewed God as corporeal, or able to assume corporeal form, was R. Moses b. Hasdai Taku, a Tosafist, in his work, Ketav Tamim, as mentioned in the above article.

@ray - Details can be found in the book mentioned. The book is based on an article you can download - download.yutorah.org/1993/905/704648.pdf - but the article doesn't go into much detail.

I'm not sure how we'd know much of anything about the events in question from sources other than Tanach...

@Menachem - Contrary to Rambam, the verses don't say anything about conversion. 1 Kings Chapter 11
