Jesus rose from the dead, this is what Christians celebrate at Easter. The grave is empty, according to the Bible. But where did Christ go after his resurrection? There are several theories about this.

Status: April 1st, 2018

Theory 1: What the Bible says about Jesus' whereabouts

In the Gospel of Mark it says: "The tomb was empty." The Bible says only a few words about where Jesus went: The Gospel of Matthew speaks of Mary and Mary Magdalene meeting Jesus. This is also mentioned in the Gospel of John. You can also read there how the risen One comes to them. What Jesus did in the 40 days between Easter and his ascension, nothing has been recorded - just that he ascended to heaven 40 days after his resurrection and is now sitting at God's right hand. At least that is what it says in the Christian creed.

Theory 2: Jesus as a hiking guru in India

Another theory assumes that Jesus survived the crucifixion and ran off to India with Mary Magdalene, where he was ultimately buried. This idea is common among esotericists. And even some Muslims who still guard his alleged grave in Kashmir today believe in it.

Theory 3: The missing corpse

Still other theories assume that Jesus' body has disappeared after all. Either because she was eaten by jackals or because she was secretly buried by his disciples.
