Rapture is the Christian dogmatic concept that all saved Christians will be raised up into heaven at, or some time before Jesus returns. Rapture spawns as an interpretation from the Bible, 1 Thessalonians 4:15-17, in the New testament:

"For this we declare to you by a word from the Lord, that we who are alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will not precede those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel and the sound of the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first."

The context and timing for this even is highly disputed among followers and theologians.
