Westminster Larger Catechism: Question 51

Question 51

What was the estate of Christ’ s exaltation?

The estate of Christ’ s exaltation comprehendeth his resurrection, (1 Cor. 15:4) ascension, (Mark 16:19) sitting at the right hand of the Father, (Eph. 1:20) and his coming again to judge the world. (Acts 1:11, Acts 17:31)

The Westminster Larger Catechism: With Scripture Proofs. (Oak Harbor, WA: Logos Research Systems, Inc., 1996).

The word "comprehendeth" in this context means that Christ's exaltation in it's most complete and most full definition includes his resurrection, ascension, sitting at the Father's right hand, and his coming in the parousia to judge the living and the dead.
