The move from biblical theology to theological interpretation of Scripture is less a methodological shift and more a transformation of perspective marked by the location and interests of those of us who engage the Bible as the church’s book. I demonstrate this transformation by reflecting on different ways of reading the story of Jesus’s ascension in Acts 1:9–11.
