I. Putting the resurrection accounts together from the four Gospels, Acts 1 and 1 Corinthians 15, the sequence of events from the Resurrection to the Ascension included the following.

- The soldiers were terrified and, after being paralyzed by fear for a short time, fled.

II. None of the Gospels discusses all of these events.

1. The Resurrection was probably too sublime for human words.

III. The Gospel of Mark begins with a simple, straightforward description of an angel at the tomb speaking to Mary Magdalene, Salome, and Mary the mother of John and Joses.

IV. Jesus then appeared to Mary Magdalene, to two disciples, and to the eleven.

D. Jesus then appeared to the eleven Apostles.

1. Although Mark does not describe Judas' death, his absence is evident.

- Jesus tied baptism into belief, treating the two as almost one.

V. Mark's description of the ascension says He "was taken up to heaven." Ephesians 4:8-10 emphasizes more of His divinity, saying that "He ascended."
