"between some of John's disciples and the Jews" - Question about Resurrected Jesus

Question about Resurrected Jesus

Christ Jesus resurrected or came back to life after the Crucifixion.  And, He ate fish and honeycomb.

Luk 24:39 Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have.
Luk 24:40 And when he had thus spoken, he shewed them his hands and his feet.
Luk 24:41 And while they yet believed not for joy, and wondered, he said unto them, Have ye here any meat?
Luk 24:42 And they gave him a piece of a broiled fish, and of an honeycomb.
Luk 24:43 And he took it, and did eat before them.

So, physically he came back to life.  But Christ Jesus never repeated His mission in the same manner that he had preached before the arrest, trial, and execution.  Instead, reportedly He, with His physical body,  ascended to Heaven.  But why?

So, most of Bible readers must think that Christ Jesus eventually died, since He only appeared several times to His disciples after the Resurrection.

But even if Christ Jesus repeated His mission like he had done before the Crucifixion, He should have been arrested again and this time He might have been beheaded like John the Baptist.  So, He had to leave Jerusalem and even Galilee.  Yet, He could have traveled preaching like Paul or Peter.  If resurrected Christ Jesus had launched a new mission, all the people must have admitted that He had really come back to life from the death.  But, He had eventually gone somewhere or ascended to Heaven.

So, we have to think about why resurrected Jesus did not repeat His mission like Paul or Peter.   Then, there must not be any controversy about His resurrection.  More people must believe in Christianity with more confidence.

Joh 3:25 Then there arose a question between some of John's disciples and the Jews about purifying.
Joh 3:26 And they came unto John, and said unto him, Rabbi, he that was with thee beyond Jordan, to whom thou barest witness, behold, the same baptizeth, and all men come to him.
Joh 3:27 John answered and said, A man can receive nothing, except it be given him from heaven.
