The Reasons for the Angels' Appearance at the Ascension

"The angels appeared to the disciples for two reasons, namely, to console them in their sorrow at his ascension by reminding them of his return, and to show that he had truly gone to heaven, not merely apparently so, as in the case of Elijah."

Bede, Commentary on the Acts of the Apostles
