Dear Theophilos: In the first book, I wrote about everything Yeshua set out to do and teach,
until the day when, after giving instructions through the Ruach HaKodesh to the emissaries whom he had chosen, he was taken up into heaven.
After his death he showed himself to them and gave many convincing proofs that he was alive. During a period of forty days they saw him, and he spoke with them about the Kingdom of God.
At one of these gatherings, he instructed them not to leave Yerushalayim but to wait for "what the Father promised, which you heard about from me.
For Yochanan used to immerse people in water; but in a few days, you will be immersed in the Ruach HaKodesh!"
When they were together, they asked him, "Lord, are you at this time going to restore self-rule to Isra'el?"
