Bible story: Ascension of Jesus

Creative activities based on the Bible story of Ascension of Jesus

The ascension is a significant event in the Bible that is recorded in both the Gospel of Luke and the book of Acts. According to Luke 24:44-53 and Acts 1, after his resurrection, Jesus appeared to his disciples and taught them about the scriptures and the kingdom of God. He then led them to the Mount of Olives, where he blessed them and was taken up into heaven. The disciples watched in awe as Jesus disappeared into the clouds, and two angels appeared, promising his return. The ascension marks the end of Jesus' earthly ministry and the beginning of the disciples' mission to spread the gospel message throughout the world.
