What matters most about Jesus? The Creed centers not on his ministry, his teachings, his miracles, or his words, but on the great drama of the Paschal Mystery: the Son of God’s descent into godforsakenness; his suffering, his death, his Resurrection and Ascension. The risen and
ascended Christ, the Creed tells us, is King of the universe, ruler of the Church, and judge of all. And one day, he will fully inaugurate his eternal kingdom.
