Theology > Jesus > Resurrection and Ascension


The Resurrection, followed forty days later by the Ascension, completed the earthly life and ministry of Jesus, the One who is the Christ. To vindicate the Son and His work the Father raised Him from the death, elevated Him, seated Him at His right hand, and gave Him a name that is above every name.

Without the Resurrection of Christ Paul affirms that the preaching of the Church is in vain and the faith of the believer is futile or empty. The believer’s life, therefore, is pitiful since he has a  false hope that is without value because it is limited to this life, and there is no future for the believer guaranteed by the Resurrection of Christ. Additionally, the individual remains in sin with no possibility of salvation.
