The Ascension of Jesus
Gospel Art Picture Kit
For 40 days after His Resurrection, Jesus met with the Apostles and spoke to them about the kingdom of God. After He had finished teaching them, He promised that the power of the Holy Ghost would come upon them and they would be witnesses of the Savior. (See Acts 1:3–8.)
Then the Apostles watched as Jesus was taken up into heaven and a cloud took Him out of sight. Two angels dressed in white suddenly stood by them and asked why they were looking up into heaven. The angels told the Apostles about the Second Coming of Jesus, when the Savior would come in a way similar to the one He had just left. (See Acts 1:9–11.)
