The Ascension

20161125_145605

After He had said this, He was taken up

as they were watching,

and a cloud received Him

out of their sight.

While He was going,

they were gazing into heaven,

and suddenly two men in white clothes

stood by them.

They said, “Men of Galilee,

why do you stand looking up into heaven?”

Acts 1:9-11a

If a good God exists, it’s likely He would cut through the mire of sin and the haze of religious ambiguity by revealing Himself in human history.  Jesus of Nazareth made radical claims of divinity that other world religious leaders never made.  And He rose from the dead, confirming those claims.  

Paul Copan, HCSB Apologetics Study Bible (2007), pg. 1199
