Subject/Title of Window: The Ascension of Jesus

Brief Description of Subject: By leaving earth, Jesus did abandon his people. To the contrary, He “ascended far above all the heavens, that he might fill all things (Eph. 4:10) Accordingly Jesus promised just before He ascended “I am with you always, even to the end of the age” (Mt. 28:20) The ascending Jesus is shown with outstretched arms embracing all mankind, reminding us to God and make disciples of all nations (Mt. 28:19). A closer look reveals the nail imprints of Jesus’s crucifixion. The glorified and exalted Savior still bears in his flesh the marks of His suffering, an eternal testimony to his dying and sacrificial love.

The MSGC is a constantly evolving database. Not all the data that has been collected by volunteers has been sorted and entered. Not every building has been completely documented.

All images in the Index are either born-digital photographs of windows or buildings or are scans of slides, prints, or other published sources. These images have been provided by volunteers and the quality of the material varies widely.

If you have any questions, additions or corrections, or think you can provide better images and are willing to share them, please contact
