Christ’s Ascension

Brother Lipscomb: Did Jesus Christ ascend with his fleshly body into heaven? If so, please harmonize the scripture that no flesh nor blood shall enter heaven.

Jesus arose with the same body, with the same wounds with which he died. We have no account of any change in this body, but Paul says: “We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump.” (1 Cor. 15:51f) As Christ was not changed in the grave, because he wished to appear to man in his mortal flesh, he was, no doubt, changed, as those who are not in their graves will be changed, in a twinkling as he ascended.
