Title:Jesus Ascending
Notes:"...Barth understands Jesus Christ's parousia as a threefold coming -- resurrection and ascension, the 'promise' of the Spirit, and His final eschaton. As such, these three forms of Christ's coming are all forms of His being and self-revelation toward, in, and for the world...There is a profound unity to the post-Easter history and the three stages of Christ's has not only taken place but is still taking place today in the outpouring of the Holy Spirit..." (Burgess, 34)
