Abstract: We obtain the explicit form of the expansion of the Jacobi polynomial $P_n^{(\alpha ,\beta )}(1-2x/\beta )$ in terms of the negative powers of $\beta$. It is known that the constant term in the expansion coincides with the Laguerre polynomial $L_n^{(\alpha )}(x)$. Therefore, the result in the present paper provides the higher terms of the asymptotic expansion as $\beta \rightarrow \infty$. The corresponding asymptotic relation between the zeros of Jacobi and Laguerre polynomials is also derived.
