5 Chapel of the Ascension Edicule on Mount of Olives in Jerusalem, Israel

According to scripture, Jesus arose from the dead on the third day. Mary Magdalene was the first to see Him. There were ten appearances. On the 40th day, His eleven disciples watched as Jesus was lifted to Heaven from Mount of Olives. The Chapel of the Ascension is believed to be the site where Jesus’ presence on earth culminated. This 12th century dome is the Edicule. Inside is the Ascension Rock. The stone bears the right footprint of Jesus before He was raised to His Father.
