Lord Jesus, was taken up to Heaven

I’m looking for an explaination of the translation in the Bible, specifically in Mark 16:19 (Lord Jesus, after he had spoken to them, was TAKEN UP TO HEAVEN), and Luke 24:52 ( While he blessed them, he parted from them and WAS CARRIED UP TO HEAVEN).
It leads some to ask, "Did Jesus not ascend into Heaven on his own power? Thank you for any help you can give me.
