As we prepared to commemorate the ascension of Jesus into heaven, 40 days after His resurrection, we consider the word “ascend” today. Did you know that Jesus predicted His ascension, just as He did His death and resurrection? Did you know that His ascension into heaven was foretold in the Old Testament, just as His death and resurrection were? The ascension of Jesus was a very important part of His work as our Savior, which is why we confess it every week in the words of the ancient and historic creeds of the church. Join us to learn more about the meaning and purpose of Christ’s ascension into heaven this week!
