Thesis 63: Christ’s Ascension to the Throne of David

The baby born of the Virgin was given the Throne of David, and is now enthroned at the right hand of God.[1] As the True Shepherd (#58), He is now extending His Kingdom in the uttermost parts of the earth.[2]

1. Luke 1:32-33; Acts 2:30-36; 7:48-49; Mark 16:19; Psalm 110:1
2. Luke 2:28-32; Isaiah 42:1-13; 25:7-9; 49:6-8; Habakkuk 2:14

These Theses are generally in chronological order through the Bible. This one arises from the prophecy recorded in Luke 1, when the Angel told Mary that the Baby she was carrying will be given "the throne of His father David."

The Birth of the Anti-King

The actual Ascension took place some 33 years after this prophecy.
