Response to The Father sent the Son to the earth from heaven, where the Son had been before.
Christ must be speaking figuratively in John 3:13.
In A Symbolical Dictionary by Charles Daubuz can be quoted:
To ascend up into heaven, as was before shewn from the Oneirocritics, signifies to be in full power, to obtain rule and dominion. And thus is the symbol to be understood in Isa_14:13-14, where the words of the king of Babylon, meaning to subdue all the world, are "I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north; I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High."
To descend front heaven, signifies, symbolically, to act by a commission from heaven.
