This part conclusion presents some closing thoughts on the concepts discussed in the preceding chapters of the part of this book. The part offers an overall assessment of Barth's ascension theology. The entire understanding of the present age as the 'time between' ascension and eschaton is self-evidently predicated upon the event of Jesus' ascension and its outcome in Jesus' ascended state. In the New Testament sense everything that is to be said about the man who receives the Holy Spirit and is constrained and filled by the Holy Spirit is an eschatological statement. The church is to be understood as Jesus' earthly-historical body, and His work is to be understood in relation to this body. At the heart of all of this is Barth's peculiar understanding of the nature of revelation, as worked out in His prolegomena, based upon his resounding affirmation that 'God reveals Himself as the Lord'.
