The Ascension of Jesus (anglicized from the Vulgate Latin: ascensio Iesu, lit. 'ascent of Jesus') is the Christian teaching that Christ physically departed from Earth by rising into Heaven, in the presence of eleven of his apostles. According to the New Testament narrative, the Ascension occurred on the fortieth day counting from the resurrection. In the Christian tradition, reflected in the major Christian creeds and confessional statements, God exalted Jesus after his death, raising him from the dead and taking him to Heaven, where Jesus took his seat at the right hand of God. In Christian art, the ascending Jesus is often shown blessing an earthly group below him, signifying the entire Church. The Feast of the Ascension is celebrated on the 40th day of Easter, always a Thursday, the Orthodox tradition has a different calendar up to a month later than in the Western tradition, and while the Anglican Communion continues to observe the feast, many Protestant churches have abandoned the observance. In Islam, Jesus was neither crucified nor raised from the dead, and according to the Quran, he was rather saved by God and raised to Heaven. Biblical accounts Immediately upon being resurrected by God from death, Jesus left the tomb and walked to the Galilee district, to prove himself by sight and touch the truth of the Gospel to his family and neighbors, that he is alive by the hand of God. The ascension of Jesus is told in LukeActs, a single work from the same anonymous author. Luke 24:50: Jesus leads the eleven remaining disciples to Bethany, a village on the Mount of Olives, and instructs them to remain in Jerusalem until the coming of the Holy Spirit: 'And it came to pass, while he blessed them, he parted from them, and was carried up into heaven. And they worshipped him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy. 'Acts 1: Jesus tells the disciples to remain in Jerusalem and await the coming of the Holy Spirit, he is then taken up from the disciples in their sight, a cloud hides him from view, and two men in white appear to tell them that he will return 'in the same way you have seen him go into heaven. ' (John 6:62), and to Mary Magdalene after his Resurrection, 'Do not hold me, for I have not yet ascended to my father... ' (John 20:17). Various epistles (Romans 8:34, Ephesians 1:1920, Colossians 3:1, Philippians 2:911, 1 Timothy 3:16, and 1 Peter 3:2122) also refer to an Ascension, seeming, like LukeActs and John, to equate it with the post-Resurrection 'exaltation' of Jesus to the right hand of God.
