After Jesus’ resurrection, He spent 40 days on earth before ascending into heaven. During this time, He appeared to many of His disciples and followers, performing miracles and teaching them about the kingdom of God.
Appearances of Jesus:
Jesus appeared to Mary Magdalene at the tomb (John 20:14-18), to two disciples on the road to Emmaus (Luke 24:13-32), to the apostles in a locked room (John 20:19-23; Luke 24:36-43), to Thomas (John 20:26-29), and to seven of His disciples while they were fishing (John 21:1-14).
The Great Commission:
One of the most important events during this time was when Jesus gave the Great Commission to His disciples. He commanded them to go into all the world and make disciples, baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and teaching them everything He had commanded them (Matthew 28:16-20).
After spending 40 days with His disciples, Jesus led them out as far as Bethany where He blessed them and was taken up into heaven (Luke 24:50-53; Acts 1:9-11). This event marked the end of Jesus’ earthly ministry and began a new phase in the life of His followers.
What did Jesus do after resurrection for 40 days? He appeared to many people, performed miracles, taught about the kingdom of God, gave His disciples the Great Commission, and ascended into heaven.
These events not only fulfilled prophecy but also provided assurance for believers that Jesus is indeed alive and that they too will one day rise from the dead. May we always remember these events and live our lives in light of what Jesus has done for us.
