After Jesus resurrected he spent 40 precious days with his disciples and then he had to say good-bye.   On this day Jesus gave special instructions and made an important announcement to his disciples.

Activity: Read The Ascension of Jesus Online
Here is a short version of what happened on the day that Jesus said good bye  - The Ascension of Jesus or read Bible scripture Acts 1:1-10 and Luke 24:50-53 On the top of the page is the version for children 3+.  Under that is a very simple version for children under 4 years of age.  Please choose and adapt the version you feel the children are best suited for.

Some words have been marked with an asterisk (*).  At the end of the story you will find the meaning for these words to aid you in explaining these words and concepts.

The story of The Ascension is one of great joy.  It would seem quite sad to have to say good bye to Jesus so soon, but He does promise to come back and He gives his beloved disciples very important instructions. He instructs his disciples to spread his story around the world.
