The former account, indeed, I made concerning all things, O Theophilus, that Jesus began both to do and to teach,
till the day in which, having given command, through the Holy Spirit, to the apostles whom he did choose out, he was taken up,
to whom also he did present himself alive after his suffering, in many certain proofs, through forty days being seen by them, and speaking the things concerning the reign of God.
And being assembled together with them, he commanded them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the promise of the Father, which, [saith he,] `Ye did hear of me;
because John, indeed, baptized with water, and ye shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit -- after not many days.'
They, therefore, indeed, having come together, were questioning him, saying, `Lord, dost thou at this time restore the reign to Israel?'
