Jesus Stories

Where is Jesus Going?

Jesus died on the cross.

That's called the crucifixion.

Three days later, when the women went to his tomb, he was gone.

That's called the resurrection.

Then Jesus appeared to the apostles.

Remember the story of Thomas?

Jesus visited other people.

He was on earth for 40 days after his crucifixion.

Jesus was getting all things in order.

He gathered his eleven apostles and told them to meet him on the Mount of Olives.

All the apostles did as Jesus had asked.

When they were all there, Jesus said:
"Teach everyone what I have taught you. Preach the Gospel.  Baptize in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.  Go throughout the world and tell everyone: Your sins will be forgiven if you turn to Me.  I am going to see My Father now but remember this, I will be with you always."

Suddenly, Jesus started going up.

Up
  Up
    Up

Up into the clouds.

The apostles were so surprised.

They watched Jesus disappear.

The apostles were amazed.

Then, hearing a voice, they turned to see two angels standing beside them.
The angels asked the apostles, "Why are you standing here looking at the sky?  Jesus, Who has gone to His Father, will return again."
 

Wow!
That was something wasn't it!
Do you know what the Crucifixion is?
Do you know what the Resurrection is?
Do you know what the Ascension is?
Do you know why Jesus did all those things?

Write to me and tell me what you think, BUT, ask your parents first.

Let's Pray:
Dear God,
Thank you for all you do for me.
Thank you for all you teach me.
Help me to understand about Jesus.
Help me to understand His Crucifixion, when He died,
His Resurrection, when He was raised from the dead,
and His Ascension, when He rose to His Father in heaven
This I ask through Christ Our Lord.
Amen

Can you think of a better prayer?
