Last part: Jesusí message to his *disciples

Mark chapter 16

Jesus returns to *heaven

Verses 19-20

After 40 days, Jesus left his *disciples (Acts 1:3). God took him to *heaven. There, Jesus again had the importance that he had in the beginning. Jesus is the son of God. Before the world began, he was there with God the Father (John 1:2). God caused Jesus to be so important again because Jesus worked as Godís servant (Philippians 2:6-11; Mark 10:45).

The *disciples believed that this fact was very important. They did not only teach that Jesus became alive after his death. They also taught that God gave Jesus the most important seat in *heaven. See Acts 2:33 and Acts 5:31.

And so the *disciples went to do Godís work. You can read about the many events that happened. See the Book of Acts.

The *disciples went to many countries. They told Godís message to many people. Some people believed; but other people were against them. They had many troubles, but God was with them. And God did not leave them. He did powerful things. And he helped people everywhere to believe.
