A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me, because I go to the Father.
Jesus would be away from His disciples for three days, and then He would reappear after His resurrection. After He gave them the “great commission”, He ascended to heaven. When this present age is complete, Jesus will come again to remove all believers from this earth. This is the blessed hope that all those who are born again have.
