Product Description

On previous occasions, Jesus had appeared to and vanished from his disciples, but this time was different. He was taken up into the sky until a cloud hid him from view. Then two angels announced that he would return again in this same way at a future date. In The Ascension of Christ, Patrick Schreiner sees the ascension as the fulfillment of Christ's threefold office of prophet/priest/king.

Publisher's Description

The Ascension is essential to the gospel

The good news of Jesus includes his life, death, resurrection, and future return--but what about his ascension? Though often neglected or misunderstood, the ascension is integral to the gospel.

In The Ascension of Christ, Patrick Schreiner argues that Jesus' work would be incomplete without his ascent to God's right hand. Not only a key moment in the gospel story, Jesus' ascension was necessary for his present ministry in and through the church. Schreiner argues that Jesus' residence in heaven marks a turning point in his three-fold offices of prophet, priest, and king. As prophet, Jesus builds the church and its witness. As priest, he intercedes before the Father. As king, he rules over all.

A full appreciation of the ascension is essential for understanding the Bible, Christian doctrine, and Christ's ongoing work in the world.
