New Credo Podcast: What Does the Ascension Have to do with the Kingdom of God?
The ascension of Christ is often given far too little attention. What is the ascension for? Is it a minor detail tacked onto the end of the story of Christ’s resurrection? And what is Christ doing in his ascended state now? Far from passively waiting for the moment of his return, Christ is interceding for believers now in his capacity as the perfect Prophet, Priest, and King.
In this Ascension Day episode of the Credo Podcast, Matthew Barrett talks with Patrick Schreiner about his recent book, The Ascension of Christ: Recovering a Neglected Doctrine. Matthew and Patrick reflect on the importance of the ascension in the gospel story and its ongoing relevance in the Christian life.
