Acts 1:3-11

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."
