A Samaritan Village Rejects Jesus

51 When the days drew near for jhim to be taken up, khe set his face lto go to Jerusalem.


51 While he blessed them, bhe parted from them and was carried up into heaven.


62 Then what if you were to see wthe Son of Man xascending to ywhere he was before?


until the day when che was taken up, after he dhad given commands ethrough the Holy Spirit to the apostles whom he had chosen.


16 Great indeed, we confess, is the mystery of godliness:

sHe1 was manifested in the flesh,

vindicated2 by the Spirit,3

tseen by angels,

uproclaimed among the nations,

vbelieved on in the world,

wtaken up in glory.


17 Jesus said to her, Do not cling to me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father; but go to ymy brothers and say to them, zI am ascending to my Father and your Father, to amy God and your God.


Therefore it says,

fWhen he ascended on high ghe led a host of captives,

and he gave gifts to men.1

(hIn saying, He ascended, what does it mean but that he had also descended into ithe lower regions, the earth?2 10 He who descended is the one who also jascended kfar above all the heavens, that he might lfill all things.)


Jesus the Great High Priest

14 Since then we have da great high priest ewho has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, flet us hold fast our confession.
