The Pulse Podcast is about living abundantly wholeheartedly.
It includes different kinds of content: Interviews, featured topics, or biblical studies.
This episode is the later—a more in-depth look at Luke 24:50-53, Jesus’ ascension to be at his heavenly Father’s right hand.
My gut tells me that a lot of people find this event strange, or perhaps just unimportant. Well, it’s definitely unique, but it’s far from unimportant. In fact, it plays a central role in New Testament faith.
I take us through these four short verses, unpack some of the background and meaning, connect it to the words of the Apostles’ Creed, and highlight how I think a proper understanding of the significance of the ascension can give you less worry and more peace, and less fear and more confidence for the living of difficult days.
