In this video, we learn about the ascension of Christ, which took place 40 days after His resurrection. We also explore some of the different aspects of our celebration of this event, including its significance and related icon and hymns.
This video is part of a series named "Exploring the Feasts of the Church" by the Department of Religious Education of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America which explores the major feasts of Christ and the Theotokos as well as the meaning and purpose of Christian worship in the context of the Church's annual liturgical cycle.
Rich with enlightening interviews, music, festal hymns, icons, and beautiful visuals, this program is sure to inspire and provoke thoughtful exploration of Orthodox worship. At the end of the presentation is a set of questions for exploration and discussion. It is designed to be used by an individual or family, as well as in a group setting such as a parish Bible study or adult church school class.
