Readings: Mark 16: 19-20, Luke 24:50-53, Acts 1:6-11

The Mark and Luke passages are just short reports, while the Acts passage has a lot more detail, including events just before and after the Ascension.

Look at Acts 1:10. Here are the "two men in white" again - the same ones that appeared outside the empty tomb maybe? And with the same type of message - instead of "Why seek ye the living among the dead?", now it is "Why are you standing there looking up at the sky?" Then they add the teaser that he will return in the same manner that they saw him leave!

What are your thoughts about the Ascension?

Kathy Mills | 15 comments The disciples must have been filled with great joy, and had their faith strengthened and reaffirmed when they witnessed Jesus ascending into heaven. After going through such a dark and sad time, they were finally able to understand why Jesus' crucifixion had to occur.
