Jesus’ time of ministry on earth lasted a very short three years. It might be strange to think about (at least it is for me) to think that the vast majority of history, The Son (“The Son” wouldn’t be called “Jesus” until the incarnation) has not been on earth, but rather in heaven. So, where is Jesus now? What is He doing? What will it be like when He returns?
Where is Jesus Now?
After Jesus resurrected, He appeared to his disciples and over 500 other people. The first chapter of Acts tells us that Jesus said goodbye to his followers and then rose into the sky and was lost from sight. The bible tells us a few things about Jesus’ whereabouts. It tells us that He is “sitting at the right hand of the father” (Hebrews 1:3). He is in heaven in the “sanctuary of the true tabernacle”. In plain English, this means that he is in the holiest place there is; the sanctuary of heaven.
