Perhaps not the right time of year to ask about the Ascension of our Lord after his resurrection, but I'd like to ask: have any of you Orthodox any idea why our Lord went up? What I mean is, given that he is now located in a raised and glorified but still human body, he must be in a place. Where is he? Why is it "up"? It links with Christians alive at the Second Coming going "up" to meet him in the air as he returns to the new, renewed earth in glory. None of my Evangelical friends has an answer; maybe no-one does. But why is his present location "up", and where is it?
