Unfolding the Journey from Jesus' Resurrection to His Ascension
Easter, of course, is the most significant day in the Christian calendar. In fact, Christians are often correctly referred to as "Easter people," and rightly so since the resurrection is the core of our belief in Christ as Savior. But of almost equal importance are the multiple appearances of Jesus to his disciples and others during the 40 days between his resurrection and his ascension. Beginning with our Savior's appearance to Mary, mother of James, and Mary Magdalene out of the tomb, and culminating with Jesus' ascension to his throne in heaven and the promise of the second coming, Risen to Glory reveals this journey through two narrators and an inspiring musical message. It promises to heighten the awareness of these momentous events in the mind and hearts of congregations in a stimulating, stirring and worshipful presentation.
