Christ » Appears, after his resurrection » Ascension of
Jesus *said to her, “Stop clinging to Me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father; but go to My brethren and say to them, ‘I ascend to My Father and your Father, and My God and your God.’”
For Christ did not enter a holy place made with hands, a mere copy of the true one, but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us;
who is at the right hand of God, having gone into heaven, after angels and authorities and powers had been subjected to Him.
While He was blessing them, He parted from them and was carried up into heaven.
What then if you see the Son of Man ascending to where He was before?
You have ascended on high, You have led captive Your captives;
You have received gifts among men,
Even among the rebellious also, that the Lord God may dwell there.
Therefore it says,
“When He ascended on high,
He led captive a host of captives,
And He gave gifts to men.”
And after He had said these things, He was lifted up while they were looking on, and a cloud received Him out of their sight.
So then, when the Lord Jesus had spoken to them, He was received up into heaven and sat down at the right hand of God.
Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession.

Then His mother and His brothers *arrived, and standing outside they sent word to Him and called Him.
After this He went down to Capernaum, He and His mother and His brothers and His disciples; and they stayed there a few days.
Therefore His brothers said to Him, “Leave here and go into Judea, so that Your disciples also may see Your works which You are doing.
For not even His brothers were believing in Him.
Do we not have a right to take along a believing wife, even as the rest of the apostles and the brothers of the Lord and Cephas?
But I did not see any other of the apostles except James, the Lord’s brother.

And He ordered us to preach to the people, and solemnly to testify that this is the One who has been appointed by God as Judge of the living and the dead.
teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
This is His commandment, that we believe in the name of His Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, just as He commanded us.
He who has My commandments and keeps them is the one who loves Me; and he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and will disclose Myself to him.”
A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another.
“If you love Me, you will keep My commandments.
If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love; just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love.
You are My friends if you do what I command you.

These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world.”
When the Lord saw her, He felt compassion for her, and said to her, “Do not weep.”
“Do not let your heart be troubled; believe in God, believe also in Me.
“I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.
But Jesus turning and seeing her said, “Daughter, take courage; your faith has made you well.” At once the woman was made well.
But Jesus, overhearing what was being spoken, *said to the synagogue official, “Do not be afraid any longer, only believe.”
Now may our Lord Jesus Christ Himself and God our Father, who has loved us and given us eternal comfort and good hope by grace,

And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, made ready as a bride adorned for her husband.
And Jesus said to them, “The attendants of the bridegroom cannot mourn as long as the bridegroom is with them, can they? But the days will come when the bridegroom is taken away from them, and then they will fast.
“Then the kingdom of heaven will be comparable to ten virgins, who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom.
But at midnight there was a shout, ‘Behold, the bridegroom! Come out to meet him.’
He who has the bride is the bridegroom; but the friend of the bridegroom, who stands and hears him, rejoices greatly because of the bridegroom’s voice. So this joy of mine has been made full.

for He was teaching them as one having authority, and not as their scribes.
And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.
