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?
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.'"
