NLT 1 In my first book I told you, Theophilus, about everything Jesus began to do and teach NIV 1 In my former book, Theophilus, I wrote about all that Jesus began to do and to teach NLT 2 until the day he was taken up to heaven after giving his chosen apostles further instructions through the Holy Spirit. NIV 2 until the day he was taken up to heaven, after giving instructions through the Holy Spirit to the apostles he had chosen. NLT 3 During the forty days after he suffered and died, he appeared to the apostles from time to time, and he proved to them in many ways that he was actually alive. And he talked to them about the Kingdom of God. NIV 3 After his suffering, he showed himself to these men and gave many convincing proofs that he was alive. He appeared to them over a period of forty days and spoke about the kingdom of God. NLT 4 Once when he was eating with them, he commanded them, “Do not leave Jerusalem until the Father sends you the gift he promised, as I told you before. NIV 4 On one occasion, while he was eating with them, he gave them this command: "Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait for the gift my Father promised, which you have heard me speak about. NLT 5 John baptized with water, but in just a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.” NIV 5 For John baptized with water, but in a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit." NLT 6 So when the apostles were with Jesus, they kept asking him, “Lord, has the time come for you to free Israel and restore our kingdom?” NIV 6 So when they met together, they asked him, "Lord, are you at this time going to restore the kingdom to Israel?" NLT 7 He replied, “The Father alone has the authority to set those dates and times, and they are not for you to know. NIV 7 He said to them: "It is not for you to know the times or dates the Father has set by his own authority. NLT 8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere—in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” NIV 8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth." NLT 9 After saying this, he was taken up into a cloud while they were watching, and they could no longer see him. NIV 9 After he said this, he was taken up before their very eyes, and a cloud hid him from their sight. NLT 10 As they strained to see him rising into heaven, two white-robed men suddenly stood among them. NIV 10 They were looking intently up into the sky as he was going, when suddenly two men dressed in white stood beside them. NLT 11 “Men of Galilee,” they said, “why are you standing here staring into heaven? Jesus has been taken from you into heaven, but someday he will return from heaven in the same way you saw him go!” NIV 11 "Men of Galilee," they said, "why do you stand here looking into the sky? This same Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven, will come back in the same way you have seen him go into heaven." NLT 12 Then the apostles returned to Jerusalem from the Mount of Olives, a distance of half a mile. NIV 12 Then they returned to Jerusalem from the hill called the Mount of Olives, a Sabbath day's walk from the city. NLT 13 When they arrived, they went to the upstairs room of the house where they were staying. Here are the names of those who were present: Peter, John, James, Andrew, Philip, Thomas, Bartholomew, Matthew, James (son of Alphaeus), Simon (the Zealot), and Judas (son of James). NIV 13 When they arrived, they went upstairs to the room where they were staying. Those present were Peter, John, James and Andrew; Philip and Thomas, Bartholomew and Matthew; James son of Alphaeus and Simon the Zealot, and Judas son of James. NLT 14 They all met together and were constantly united in prayer, along with Mary the mother of Jesus, several other women, and the brothers of Jesus. NIV 14 They all joined together constantly in prayer, along with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brothers. NLT 15 During this time, when about 120 believers were together in one place, Peter stood up and addressed them. NIV 15 In those days Peter stood up among the believers (a group numbering about a hundred and twenty) NLT 16 “Brothers,” he said, “the Scriptures had to be fulfilled concerning Judas, who guided those who arrested Jesus. This was predicted long ago by the Holy Spirit, speaking through King David. NIV 16 and said, "Brothers, the Scripture had to be fulfilled which the Holy Spirit spoke long ago through the mouth of David concerning Judas, who served as guide for those who arrested Jesus-- NLT 17 Judas was one of us and shared in the ministry with us.” NIV 17 he was one of our number and shared in this ministry." NLT 18 (Judas had bought a field with the money he received for his treachery. Falling headfirst there, his body split open, spilling out all his intestines. NIV 18 (With the reward he got for his wickedness, Judas bought a field; there he fell headlong, his body burst open and all his intestines spilled out. NLT 19 The news of his death spread to all the people of Jerusalem, and they gave the place the Aramaic name which means “Field of Blood.”) NIV 19 Everyone in Jerusalem heard about this, so they called that field in their language Akeldama, that is, Field of Blood.) NLT 20 Peter continued, “This was written in the book of Psalms, where it says, ‘Let his home become desolate, with no one living in it.’ It also says, ‘Let someone else take his position.’ NIV 20 "For," said Peter, "it is written in the book of Psalms, " 'May his place be deserted; let there be no one to dwell in it,' and, " 'May another take his place of leadership.' NLT 21 “So now we must choose a replacement for Judas from among the men who were with us the entire time we were traveling with the Lord Jesus— NIV 21 Therefore it is necessary to choose one of the men who have been with us the whole time the Lord Jesus went in and out among us, NLT 22 from the time he was baptized by John until the day he was taken from us. Whoever is chosen will join us as a witness of Jesus’ resurrection.” NIV 22 beginning from John's baptism to the time when Jesus was taken up from us. For one of these must become a witness with us of his resurrection." NLT 23 So they nominated two men: Joseph called Barsabbas (also known as Justus) and Matthias. NIV 23 So they proposed two men: Joseph called Barsabbas (also known as Justus) and Matthias. NLT 24 Then they all prayed, “O Lord, you know every heart. Show us which of these men you have chosen NIV 24 Then they prayed, "Lord, you know everyone's heart. Show us which of these two you have chosen NLT 25 as an apostle to replace Judas in this ministry, for he has deserted us and gone where he belongs.” NIV 25 to take over this apostolic ministry, which Judas left to go where he belongs." NLT 26 Then they cast lots, and Matthias was selected to become an apostle with the other eleven. NIV 26 Then they cast lots, and the lot fell to Matthias; so he was added to the eleven apostles.
