After Jesus' resurrection from the dead, He appeared on the earth teaching and encouraging His disciples until it was time for Him to ascend to God. How many days was it between the two?
The Bible tells us that it was forty days between Christ's resurrection and His ascension when He returned to the heavens.
"He presented himself alive to them after his suffering by many proofs, appearing to them during forty days and speaking about the kingdom of God." Acts 1:3 ESV
