Angels Ascending and Descending upon the Son of Man
The Gospel at St. John 1:35-51 is a remarkable unfolding of the truth that Jesus is the fulfillment of all the Scriptures: he is the Lamb of God (the Passover); he is the Christ (the King); he is the end of Moses and the Prophets; he is the Ladder of Jacob. He is the Incarnate God, who brings heaven to earth that we may ascend to heaven in him. The sermon.
