Forty days after Jesus’s resurrection, God took Him from earth into Heaven. We call this event “the ascension”—because His disciples literally saw Jesus ascend into Heaven. The Bible says, “He was taken up before their very eyes, and a cloud hid him from their sight” (Acts 1:9).
But after His resurrection Jesus would never grow old or die for another reason: When He was raised from the dead, God gave Him a new body that would never age or die. In some ways it resembled His old body—but in other ways it was far different. Thus, for example, Jesus was able to pass through locked doors and appear in the midst of His disciples—and then vanish from sight. We can barely imagine this—but it is one of the proofs that Jesus has conquered death.
