The Ascension of Jesus: from Daybreak

“Peter, what happened today?” Simon asked, unable to wait any longer.

“We eleven were in the upper room in Jerusalem south of the Temple where we had observed Passover together. He appeared to us and then brought us here to the mount overlooking the town of Bethany. He told us we would not see Him again until He comes in glory and He would prepare a place for us in the mansions of heaven. Elijah and Moses joined the Messiah, one on each side of Him. A cloud suddenly covered them and they were gone,” Peter said.

“Two beings, arrayed in white garments that shone with an unusual light, appeared at once beside us,” John added. “They asked, ‘why are you staring after Him for He will return as he left‘.”

Peter continued. “He told us to go back to Jerusalem with His Mother and await the Spirit of truth. The Holy Spirit would give us the courage we needed to spread the good news of His teaching ‘to the ends of the earth‘. We are on the way to His Mother and ours, and then to the upper room.”
