1 thought on “Why is the Ascension the most important part of Jesus’ ministry? | Psephizo

  1. Paul Braterman

    I ask in no spirit of ridicule, what do you think happened? “Taken up, and hidden from their view by a cloud” (EV Rieu translation); as if Jesus’ body was an object that was lifted into the stratosphere. I don’t think that this is what you believe, nor do I really imagine that this is what the author of Acts, an educated person of his time, believed either. I am in no position to say anything about Psephizo’s spiritual interpretation, but what do you think happened in physical terms to Jesus’s body regarded as a material object, which presumably it was, whatever else it may have been?
