Question 71: How should you understand Jesus’ ascension into heaven?

Jesus was taken up out of human sight and returned in his humanity to the glory he had shared with the Father before his incarnation. There he intercedes for, and receives into heavenly life, all who come to him in faith. Though absent in body, Jesus is always with me by his Spirit and hears me when I pray. ( John 17:5; Acts 1:9–11; Romans 8:34; Hebrews 7:23–25)
