The Ascension of Christ
And the Lord Jesus, after he had spoken to them, was taken up into heaven, and sitteth at the right hand of God.– MARK xvi. 19.
INTRODUCTION. During forty days after His Resurrection our Lord appeared many times and in diverse places and circumstances to His disciples and others. He walked and talked with them. He permitted them to see and put their hands into His wounds, and He ate with them; thus proving by the most incontestable arguments that He was really risen from the dead, and was again living in His own body. It was also during those forty days that our Saviour gave His Apostles final instructions concerning His Church.
