It's interesting to note that in scripture there are only three places that record Christ's physical ascension: Acts 1:9, Luke 24:51, and Mark 16:19. The KJV and the nasb agree on Acts 1:9, but on Luke 24:51 the nasb removes the part that speaks of the physical ascension of the Lord. In Mark 16:19 the nasb contains the ascension but casts a footnote at the bottom saying that this verse is omitted in some other manuscripts, thus casting doubt on the authenticity of the verse. Therefore there is only one verse that contains a 100% true account of Christ's ascension. We all know that there has to be more than one verse found in scripture to prove a doctrine, so according to the nasb you cannot prove Christ's ascension. If Christ didn't rise then all our faith is in vain right?
