The Ascended Christ

Acts 1:6-11

One of the last sentences in Luke’s Gospel is “He (Jesus) parted from them and was carried up into heaven.” So, that would be a wrap, right? End of the story of Jesus’ ministry. Wait. Luke wrote a second book of the Bible, too, didn’t he? How does Luke begin his second volume, The Book of Acts? The very first sentence in the Book of Acts is, “In the first book, O Theophilus, I have dealt with all that Jesus began to do and teach, until the day when he was taken up.” Did you catch that? As Luke begins his second book he refers to all that Jesus began to do before his ascension to heaven. Well, that stirs our interest, doesn’t it? So, what’s Jesus doing now? What sort of ministry does Jesus have now that he has ascended to heaven? Join us as we look for answers to those questions!
