After the crucifixion of Jesus, his followers were left heartbroken and lost. However, after three days, he rose from the dead and appeared to his disciples.
But where did Jesus live after his resurrection? Let’s explore this question further.
The Resurrection of Jesus
The resurrection of Jesus is a central event in Christianity. According to the Bible, on the third day after his crucifixion, Jesus rose from the dead. He appeared to Mary Magdalene and other women at the tomb, as well as to his disciples.
Appearances of Jesus After His Resurrection
The Bible records several appearances of Jesus after his resurrection. He appeared to two disciples on the road to Emmaus, to Peter, to ten apostles (excluding Thomas), and later to all eleven apostles (including Thomas). He also appeared by the Sea of Galilee and on a mountain in Galilee.
Living with His Disciples
After his resurrection, Jesus spent time with his disciples. In fact, he stayed with them for forty days before ascending into heaven. During this time, he taught them about God’s kingdom and gave them instructions on what they should do next.
Ascension into Heaven
At the end of forty days, Jesus led his disciples out as far as Bethany and then blessed them before ascending into heaven. This event is known as the Ascension and it marks the end of Jesus’ earthly ministry.
