After Jesus resurrected from the dead he Ascended into Heaven. We call this holy Thursday, when Jesus fully ascended into heaven.
The Resurrection of Jesus
Jesus was crucified on a cross in Jerusalem after claiming to be the King of the Jews. He resurrected from the dead and rose to new life.
Saul was walking to Damascus when suddenly a bright light from Heaven appeared around him. God said "Saul, Saul why do you persecute me?" "Who are you Lord?" Saul asked; "I am Jesus whom you are persecuting" God replied. After this Saul was blind for three days. God told Saul to go into Damascus and do what he was told. Soon God called a disciple named Ananias in a vision and told him to go to Saul who was busy praying, and restore his sight. Saul then was baptized.

Edict of Milan

Eastern and Western Schism
The Eastern and Western Schism was the break of communion between what are now the Eastern Orthodox and Roman Catholic churches, which has lasted since about the 11th century. In 1048 a French bishop was elected as Pope Leo IX. and placed on it a parchment that declared the Patriarch of Constantinople, Michael Cerularius, to be excommunicated. He then marched out of the church and left the city. A week later the patriarch solemnly condemned the cardinal. He and the clerics who accompanied him to Rome were intent on reforming the papacy and the entire church.

He is the patron Saint of ecologists which is a title honoring his boundless love for animals and nature. He also had a vision of an angel carrying Jesus on the cross. He wished he could have a painful death like Jesus after the vision he had the holes in his hands and feet like Jesus.
The Council of Jerusalem
Council of Jerusalem was a conference of the Christian Apostles in Jerusalem in about 50 AD that stated that Gentile Christians did not have to follow the Mosaic Law of the Jews.
Council of Nicea
The first ecumenical council of the Christian church. Meeting in ancient Nicea. It was called by the emperor Constantine . Teaches that Jesus was divine, but slightly inferior to the father. Jesus was the first human being that was created in time by God. The Orthodox doctrine teaches that Jesus is divine, "of the same substance" as the father, and was with the father at the very first moment of creation. Sunday was a fixed date and was used to celebrate Easter. The Nicean creed was written and adopted.
Council of Constantinople
The second ecumenical council of the christian church. The meeting was summoned by the emperor. The council of Constantinople also declared finally the Trinitarian doctrine of the equality of the holy spirit with the father and the son. Teachings believed that they divided human & divine parts of Jesus and followers of Macedonius said the Holy Spirit was a divine messenger, but not fully God. The Orthodox doctrine teaches that the teachings of nicea were confirmed and expanded. The holy spirit is also fully divine. Thus the trinity has one divine nature but three distinct persons.
Council of Ephesus
Council of christian bishops convened in Ephesus. It defined the catholic dogma. It teaches that Mary is the mother of Jesus but should not be called the mother of God so that Jesus' humanity is not neglected. The Orthodox doctrine states that Mary is traditionally and properly called the mother of God. Jesus has both a divine and human nature, but united in his one person.
Council of Chalcedon
It is the fourth ecumenical council of the christian church, held in Chalcedon. It was aranged by the emperor Marcian, it was attended by about 520 bishops or their representatives and was the largest and best documented council of the early councils. It teaches that Jesus was both human and divine, but he had only "one nature'' his divinity totally replaced his human nature. The Orthodox doctrine teaches that The earthly Jesus was both fully human and fully divine; his two natures and two wills were perfectly united in his one person.
The Gospel of Mark
60 AD - 70 AD
The Gospel of Mark is the second book of the New Testament. The Gospel of Mark records the main events and teachings of Jesus with as much accuracy as it can.
The Gospel of Luke
80 AD - 85 AD
The Gospel of Luke tells of the origins, birth, ministry, atonement, death, resurrection, and ascension of Jesus Christ. To the early church, the ox represented the priestly character of our Lord and his sacrifice on our behalf.
The Gospel of Matthew
The Gospel of Matthew is like the others in the New Testament. It is evidently is based on sources that were in existence for some time. The source on which most of the material is based is The Gospel of Mark.
The Gospel of John
The Gospel of John appears fourth, after the Synoptic Gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke. While the other gospels emphasize the Kingdom of God and the Kingdom of Heaven, John instead emphasizes new life found in Jesus.
