| The Resurrection And Ascension |
ARY, THE MOTHER of Jesus, and the other Mary, went to visit the tomb early in the morning of the third day.
|Jesus' ascends into Heaven.|
There was a great earthquake and the Angel of God descended and rolled back the stone and sat upon it, so that the keepers shook with afright.
But the Angel said "Fear not, for Jesus is not here, He is risen, as He, said."
So the two Marys ran to tell His disciples the great news, and on their way met Jesus Himself, and they fell at His feet and worshipped Him.
He told them to go and tell His disciples to go into Galilee and He would meet them there.
This He did, and for the last time He met them on a hill side in Bethany, and again taught them, telling them still to go out into the world and preach repentance and the remission of sins in His Name.
Then He lifted up His hands, and blessed them, and even as He did so, He was suddenly carried up into Heaven and hidden from their sight.
