It may be one of the most overlooked events in the Bible, but the Ascension is a key element in the Gospel story's completion. After His resurrection, Jesus continued teaching His followers and preparing them for his earthly departure. As His actions demonstrate, Jesus loves to bless His people: His last act on earth was to bless His followers, and He continues to care for us from the Father’s right hand. Alistair Begg urges us to respond with joyful worship and obedience.
1In the first book, O Theophilus, I have dealt with all that Jesus began to do and teach,
50Then he led them out as far as Bethany, and lifting up his hands he blessed them.
