Ministry of the Disciples
The disciples are briefly taken to heaven, where they see and hear marvelous things.
The disciples are forbidden from writing down their experiences.
The disciples are unable to determine whether their visit to heaven was literal and physical, or whether it was a spiritual vision, or an out-of-body experience.
The disciples minister among the people.
The disciples preach, baptize, and confer the Holy Ghost among the people, but the physical status of the three immortal disciples is undetermined.
Non–believers futilely attempt to imprison and exile the disciples, but the disciples are unstoppable: they destroy the prisons, and defy all traps.
They survive being cast in burning furnaces and dens of wild beasts.
The disciples do all they can to teach the gospel to the people, and bring the Jesus’ followers into unison.
