[Thou] Theophilus, first I made a sermon of all [the] things, that Jesus began to do and teach,
[till] into the day of his ascension, in which he commanded by the Holy Ghost to his apostles, whom he had chosen; [till into the day, in which he commanding to the apostles by the Holy Ghost, whom he chose, was taken up;]
to whom [and] he showed himself alive after his passion, by many arguments [by many arguments, or provings], appearing to them forty days, and speaking of the realm of God.
And he ate with them, and commanded [to them], that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but abide the promise of the Father, which ye heard, he said [he saith], by my mouth;
for [soothly] John baptized in water, but ye shall be baptized in the Holy Ghost, after these few days [not after these many days].
Therefore they that were come together, asked him, and said, Lord, whether in this time thou shalt restore the kingdom of Israel? [Therefore they that had come together, asked him, saying, Lord, if in this time shalt thou restore the kingdom of Israel?]
