After Jesus was crucified and buried, he rose from the dead on the third day. This event is known as the resurrection of Jesus Christ and is celebrated by Christians around the world.
But what did Jesus do after he came back to life? Let’s take a look at some of the key events that occurred in the days following his resurrection.
The Empty Tomb
When Mary Magdalene and some other women went to visit Jesus’ tomb, they found that it was empty. An angel appeared to them and told them that Jesus had risen from the dead. The women were amazed and went to tell the disciples what they had seen.
Appearances to Disciples
After his resurrection, Jesus appeared to his disciples on several occasions. On one occasion, he appeared to two disciples who were walking on the road to Emmaus. They did not recognize him at first, but when he broke bread with them, they realized who he was.
On another occasion, Jesus appeared to his disciples while they were fishing on the Sea of Galilee. He helped them catch a large number of fish and then cooked breakfast for them on the shore.
Ascension into Heaven
Forty days after his resurrection, Jesus led his disciples to Mount Olivet, where he blessed them and then ascended into heaven. As he ascended, a cloud took him out of their sight.
The Great Commission
Before ascending into heaven, Jesus gave his disciples what is known as the Great Commission. He told them to go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. He also promised that those who believed would be saved.
The resurrection of Jesus Christ is one of the most important events in Christian history. After rising from the dead, Jesus appeared to his disciples several times before ascending into heaven. He also gave them the Great Commission, which is still followed by Christians around the world today.
