The idea being that Jesus defeated all death, conquered it, and became something greater than it. He wasn't reborn in the same way. He was reborn greater...

Reborn is innaccurate here; he rose again, that is the bonds of death were broken - he ceased to be dead.

What was revealed to the disciples was the full extent of his 'glory' which had been hinted at throughout his incarnate life, at the Transfiguration for example.
