Acts 1:1 In-Context

1 Theophilus, I wrote about Jesus in my earlier book. I wrote about all he did and taught
2 until the day he was taken up to heaven. Before Jesus left, he gave orders to the apostles he had chosen. He did this through the Holy Spirit.
3 After his suffering and death, he appeared to them. In many ways he proved that he was alive. He appeared to them over a period of 40 days. During that time he spoke about God's kingdom.
4 One day Jesus was eating with them. He gave them a command. "Do not leave Jerusalem," he said. "Wait for the gift my Father promised. You have heard me talk about it.
5 John baptized with water. But in a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit."
