His ascension towards Heaven

Sponsored link.

Jesus' ascension:

Three of the Gospels record in some detail the bodily ascension of Yeshua of Nazareth (a.k.a. Jesus Christ) towards heaven on a Thursday in the spring of a year circa 30 CE. The exact year has been forgotten.

The Christian church celebrates the ascension of Jesus annually on a Thursday, exactly forty days after Easter Sunday and ten days before Pentecost. Although tradition states that it was first celebrated in 68 CE, it did not become formally recognized by the church until the late 3rd century. Depending upon the phases of the moon in a particular year, it is celebrated in the West between April 30 and June 03. Ascension day marks the end of the Easter season.
