They were looking intently up into the sky as he was going, when suddenly two men dressed in white2 stood beside them.
"Men of Galilee,"3 they said, "why do you stand here looking into the sky? This same Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven, will come back4 in the same way you have seen him go into heaven."
