Ascension


AscensionActs 1:1-14; Revelation 1:18

 The next window, executed by Tiffany, honors Samuel Inman.

 The scene at the bottom shows two keys. Christ said “I am alive for evermore, Amen: and have the keys of hell and of death.”

 In the large scene Christ's disciples are gathered around Him at the Mount of Olives. He was with them after his resurrection for forty days, and they listened to him and began to understand what they had never understood during his life . . . the meaning of His sacrificial death and His resurrection. The scene depicts Christ at the end of the forty days in the scene of the ascension. His disciples are all around Him and Christ is ascending into heaven with the clouds in the background as He rises.

 

High above is the crown of glory that Christ is going to heaven to receive.

 

This was intended to be the second window installed, but the plan was modified by a change in window ten (see Appendix A, Plans for the Sequence and Names of the Windows).
