Questions for Discussion:
Re-read Psalm 2 and Acts 1:6-11

  1. Why does it matter that Jesus ascended into heaven?
  2. What are some of the ramifications of the Jesus being King of Kings and Lord of Lords?
  3. Worldly rulers are established by God (Romans 13:1). How do we understand Christ’s ultimate authority over them? What does this mean for Christians as they live under both good and unjust rulers?
  4. What are some examples that the Bible shows God’s purposes are being fulfilled through both the good and evil decisions of the rulers of this world?
