Use your Bible, Action Bible or Children’s Bible to read and discuss the GREAT COMMISSION and JESUS’ ASCENSION INTO HEAVEN.
After Jesus rose from the dead, He met with His disciples many times. On the 40th day after His resurrection, Jesus instructed His disciples to go out and tell others how Jesus died on the cross for our sins, was buried and rose from the dead on the third day. This is called the Great Commission. (Matthew 29:19-20) Then the disciples watched as Jesus ascended into heaven. He went up to heaven to be with God. Angels appeared and reminded them that Jesus will come back to earth again someday. (Luke 24:51-52) (Acts 1:9-11)
