DEAR N.G.: The Bible clearly states that after His resurrection Jesus repeatedly appeared to His disciples over a period of 40 days , and then miraculously ascended into the presence of God. The Bible says, ” He was taken up before their very eyes, and a cloud hid him from their sight” (Acts 1:9).

Lazarus of Bethany, also known as Saint Lazarus or Lazarus of the Four Days , venerated in the Eastern Orthodox Church as (Righteous) Lazarus the Four Days Dead after he rose again, is the subject of a prominent sign of Jesus in the Gospel of John, in which Jesus restores him to life four days after his death.
Recent astronomical research uses the contrast between the synoptic date of Jesus’ last Passover on the one hand with John’s date of the subsequent “Jewish Passover ” on the other hand, to propose Jesus’ Last Supper to have been on Wednesday, 1 April AD 33 and the crucifixion on Friday 3 April AD 33 and the Resurrection
