    Correct Answer
    C. Offering sacrifices and petitioning God the Father to forgive human sins
    Explanation
    After Jesus' ascension, according to the Bible, he continues his work in heaven by preparing a place for believers and acting as a high priest. However, he does not offer sacrifices and petition God the Father to forgive human sins. This is because Jesus' sacrifice on the cross was a once-for-all sacrifice that atoned for the sins of humanity. Therefore, there is no need for him to offer sacrifices in heaven or petition for forgiveness of sins as it has already been accomplished through his sacrifice on earth.
