"The High Triumph of the Cross" by John R. de Witt - Fri May 27, 2005 4:08 AM
Not nearly so much is said in the New Testament about the ascension as about the resurrection. The resurrection is the great focus of New Testament teaching. His rising from the dead set the seal upon all he had done in obedience to the Father. Because he rose from the grave, we know that what he meant to do has in fact been accomplished. But the New Testament does speak very specifically of the Lordís ascension into heaven. We must try to understand a little of what the ascension may and must mean to us.
This is an excellent article on a subject which is rarely talked about or even preached on. As Mr. de Witt writes, we are told much about the resurrection, at least during the Easter season, but rarely do we hear or know much about our Lord's ascension into heaven. If you would like to know more about this biblical teaching, then you will definitely want to read this article.
