Acts 1:1-11, NLT
Acts of the Apostles 1
The Promise of the Holy Spirit
1In my first book*1:1 The reference is to the Gospel of Luke. I told you, Theophilus, about everything Jesus began to do and teach
4Once 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.
The Ascension of Jesus
6So when the apostles were with Jesus, they kept asking him, “Lord, has the time come for you to free Israel and restore our kingdom?”
7He replied, “The Father alone has the authority to set those dates and times, and they are not for you to know.
9After saying this, he was taken up into a cloud while they were watching, and they could no longer see him.
