:help: In Acts 1:3, after his resurrection, Jesus spent 40 days with the disciples, immediately before his ascension. Is there any mention or elaboration, in any other book of the Bible, on the contents of that 40-day teaching? It is remarkable that there is no extensive record of the words he spoke during those days. :help:

I do not know of any. But it's a good question.

I don't know any record of Jesus before He ascended teaching after His death on the cross, He verified His resurrection to many, and then some where in new testament writings (I cant find at the moment) but do recall that after His resurrection and before He ascended He said He must go and minister to those in captivity/grave before returning to the Father (and since I cant find that scripture at the moment) I cant say for sure that the word minister could be interpreted as teach where Jesus said this about ministering to those in captivity/grave before returning to the Father.
