Acts 1:6-16 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
6 So when they had come together, they were asking Him, saying, "Lord, 1is it at this time You are restoring the kingdom to Israel?" 7 He said to them, "It is not for you to know times or epochs which 2the Father has fixed by His own authority; 8 but you will receive power 3when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be 4My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and 5Samaria, and even to 6the remotest part of the earth."

The Ascension

9 And after He had said these things, 7He was lifted up while they were looking on, and a cloud received Him out of their sight. 10 And as they were gazing intently into athe sky while He was going, behold, 8two men in white clothing stood beside them. 11 They also said, "9Men of Galilee, why do you stand looking into bthe sky? This Jesus, who 10has been taken up from you into heaven, will 11come in just the same way as you have watched Him go into heaven."

The Upper Room

12 Then they 12returned to Jerusalem from the c13mount called dOlivet, which is near Jerusalem, a eSabbath day's journey away. 13 When they had entered the city, they went up to 14the upper room where they were staying; 15that is, Peter and John and fJames and Andrew, Philip and Thomas, Bartholomew and Matthew, gJames the son of Alphaeus, and Simon the Zealot, and 16Judas the hson of iJames. 14 These all with one mind 17were continually devoting themselves to prayer, along with 18the women, and Mary the 19mother of Jesus, and with His 20brothers. 15 jAt this time Peter stood up in the midst of 21the brethren (a gathering of about one hundred and twenty kpersons was there together ), and said, 16 "Brethren , 22the Scripture had to be fulfilled, which the Holy Spirit foretold by the mouth of David concerning Judas, 23who became a guide to those who arrested Jesus.
