“The ascension shifted Christ’s threefold work into a new epoch. Before, he was a prophet on the earth; now he is the prophet from heaven who builds his church. Before, he was a priest on earth; now he is our heavenly priest who intercedes for us in the true tent. Before, he was worshiped as the king of the Jews; now he has been installed as the Lord of heaven and earth, where he now rules from his throne.” What an amazing book! I was really excited for its release, and even more so to read it. Patrick Schreiner has a way of keeping you engaged and making theological concepts clear. From the start he convinces you why you shouldn’t neglect this amazing doctrine. In his new book he walks you through how the ascension completes and magnifies Christ’s work. Each chapter is wonderfully sectioned as you read about Christ’s threefold office as prophet, priest, and king: what Scripture teaches regarding that particular office, “shadow” stories of that office, how the ascension marks a turn in Christ’s work as he now accomplishes these vocations from heaven, and finally, how it applies to the church today. You really learn how these wonderful theological truths apply to you today . This was my first read in the “Snapshot Series” by Lexham Press, and I was truly blessed. I would also highly recommend this book as an introduction to Christology. Grab the book today!
