Torrey - Christ -7.1- The Fact of Christ's Ascension

I. THE FACT OF THE ASCENSION. Ephesians 4:8 — "Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men." Acts 1:9 — "And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight." Luke 24:51 — "And it came to pass, while he blessed them, he was parted from them, and carried up into heaven." Hebrews 10:12 — "But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God."

Proposition: Jesus Christ ascended up on high, was received into Heaven, and is seated at the right hand of God.

The ascension or exaltation of Jesus Christ is spoken of at least thirty-three times in the New Testament.
