In this week's episode Aaron and Kevin are having a conversation about the ascension of Jesus into heaven. We confess this in the creed, "He ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty."
In Acts 1, we see Jesus lifted up on a cloud which took him out of sight. The disciples who were with him looked up at the sky wondering where Jesus had went when two angels appeared and said, "Men of Galilee, why do you stand looking into heaven? This Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will come in the same way as you saw him go into heaven."
So, it begs the question, "Where is Jesus now?" We talk like Jesus is with us. But, is he really? Or did he leave the creation for awhile and he'll come back again some day. How active is he? How close to us is he?
We hope you enjoy this conversation.
