Apostles Creed Article 6: The Exaltation of Christ

Article six of the Apostles’ Creed states the following: “He ascended into heaven, and sitteth at the right hand of God.” Jesus has ascended into heaven. The ascension of Jesus and His session at God's right hand usually receive less attention than His birth and resurrection. In our eyes, Christ’s birth and resurrection are more important than His ascension. Apart from Jesus' ascension and His being seated at God's right hand, however, Christmas, Good Friday, and Easter would be stripped of their meaning. Jesus' ascension and His being seated at God's right hand is the tangible evidence that God the Father has accepted everything that Jesus did. It is as if God the Father said: "Well done, my Son. Come and sit on the throne at My right hand.”
