The resurrected Jesus appears to His disciples and other people, and has some trouble convincing them who He is, then he has breakfast with Peter and colleagues after they go fishing, then He goes to heaven (the Ascension): Luke 24:13–43; Mark 16:12–14; John 20:19–21:25; Matthew 28:16–20; Mark 16:15–20; Luke 24:44–53; Acts 1:1–11

The author of the Gospel of John, who is John according to tradition, told us why he wrote down the events of Jesus’ life:

John 20:39-31 The disciples saw Jesus do many other miraculous signs in addition to the ones recorded in this book. But these are written so that you may continue to believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing in him you will have life by the power of his name.
