In this volume, Henry Barclay Swete examines Jesus’ resurrection and ascension and shows how these inform our understanding of his role as king, priest, prophet, mediator, judge, and much more. Swete’s lectures are intended to train young clergymen and encourage “all whose ambition it is to live their lives in Christ.”
