Ascension 2010 - Sit at My Right Hand (Ps 110)

Today is Ascension Sunday, one of the six evangelical feast days that was retained by the Reformers as a means of celebrating the pivotal moments in the life of Christ. Technically, Ascension Day was last Thursday – 40 days after Easter Sunday. But we have yet to recover celebrating Ascension mid-week and so we’ll rest content for now with a Sunday celebration. So what is the Ascension and why did Jesus consider the Ascension such a critical point in His earthly ministry that he censured Mary Magdalene for neglecting it?
