Jesus was taken up into heaven


Jesus was taken up into heaven

Mark 16:19(Jesus was taken up into heaven after his resurrection)
                19 After the Lord Jesus had spoken to them, he was taken up into heaven and he sat at the right hand of God.


Lk 24:50, 51(Jesus was taken in to heaven while blessing His disciples)
                50 When he had led them out to the vicinity of Bethany, he lifted up his hands and blessed them. 51 While he was blessing them, he left them and was taken up into heaven.

John 6:62(Jesus told His disciples that He would ascend into heaven)
                61 Aware that his disciples were grumbling about this, Jesus said to them, “Does this offend you? 62 Then what if you see the Son of Man ascend to where he was before! 

Acts 1:-9-11(Jesus was taken into heaven before eyes of Men of Galilee and He would come back the same way from heaven)
                9 After he said this, he was taken up before their very eyes, and a cloud hid him from their sight.
 10 They were looking intently up into the sky as he was going, when suddenly two men dressed in white stood beside them. 11 “Men of Galilee,” they said, “why do you stand here looking into the sky? This same Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven, will come back in the same way you have seen him go into heaven.”

1 Tim 3:16(Jesus was taken up in glory after fulfilling the Father’s mission)
                16 Beyond all question, the mystery from which true godliness springs is great:
   He appeared in the flesh, 
   was vindicated by the Spirit,[a] 
was seen by angels, 
   was preached among the nations, 
was believed on in the world, 
   was taken up in glory.
