    Exalted Above the Heavens

    The Risen and Ascended Christ

    New Studies in Biblical Theology

    by Peter C. Orr
    Series Editor D. A. Carson

    Christians usually focus on what Jesus has done (his life, death and resurrection) and what he will do (his second coming and reign). However, Christ is the one who not only lived, died, rose, and will come again: he is also currently seated at God's right hand. In this NSBT volume, Peter Orr explores the New Testament witness to Jesus as he is now, the exalted Christ, through the lenses of his identity, his location, and his activity.
