Eschatology: Between Ascension and Return

I. After the Ascension: Soteriology, Continued
Eternal prophethood (John 16:12-15, Matt. 28:20, 1 Cor. 2:2-13)
Eternal priesthood (Heb. 7:23-8:2, 9:24, Ro. 8:34)
Eternal reign (Col. 1:13, Eph. 5:5, 2 Pet. 1:11, Rev. 3:21; cf. 1 Cor. 15:24ff)

II. Jesus the Absentee Landlord (Matt. 24:45-25:30)
Presence-in-absence: 1 Cor. 5:3-5; Matt. 28:16-20
"Real absence": Matt. 26:29, 1 Cor. 11:26
"Real presence": John 6:54
Two mediators of Christ:
The Holy Spirit
The Church

III. To Our Advantage: Making Room for the Holy Spirit
Ascension as a Trinitarian event
The Church Age as the "Age of the Spirit"
How new, how old? Covenant v. dispensational evangelicalism

IV. The Body of Christ: The Church Does Jesus' Work
Ministries in Christ's name; worship; prayer; depiction

V. Ascending With Jesus Today
We ascend in prayer and worship (2 Cor. 12:2-3, Rev. 1:10-12, Col. 3:1)
How present, how absent? The eschatology of Christian worship
"Sweet Presence of Jesus"
"When We See Him (from Phil. 2:10-11)"
