Jesus ascends into Heaven

May 12, 2021 | Podcasts

Continuing on from our recent Passion Week podcasts, we now look towards the events of Ascension and Pentecost.  The Catechism of the New Apostolic Church explains to us the circumstances surrounding the ascension of Jesus from this earth.  We know that forty days after His resurrection, Jesus Christ ascended from among the circle of His Apostles into heaven, to God, His Father. Upon His departure, He left the comforting words that in the coming days they would be baptised with the Holy Spirit.

A short podcast, which explains the events of the ascension in further detail, can be accessed by clicking on the link below.  This podcast also features two bible readings from Acts 1:4-11. The first version comes from the familiar New King James Version of the bible, and the second, which features slightly more modern language, is taken from the English Standard Version bible.
