The 40 days between Jesus’ resurrection and His ascension are some of the most significant days of his life, but often the least talked about.
In his resurrected body he could walk and talk and eat with those he appeared to, showing he was physically alive. Also, he was able to appear and disappear from sight, even behind closed doors.
During these 40 days Jesus was publicly announcing to the world he had risen from the dead. He also had other plans.
As you’ll see in the events listed below, Jesus makes a point to reconcile with his disciples and commission them to take his saving message to the world.
These are the events between Jesus’ resurrection and ascension into heaven:
- Jesus’ Resurrection (Matthew 28, Mark 16, Luke 24, John 20)
- Jesus Appears to Mary Magdalene
- Jesus Appears to the Women
