1 Theophilus, I first wrote to you
a 1.1 I first wrote to you: The Gospel of Luke.
about all that Jesus did and taught from the very first
1.1 Lk 1.1
2 until he was taken up to heaven. But before he was taken up, he gave orders to the apostles he had chosen with the help of the Holy Spirit.
3 For forty days after Jesus had suffered and died, he proved in many ways that he had been raised from death. He appeared to his apostles and spoke to them about God's kingdom. 4 While he was still with them, he said:
1.4 Lk 24.49.
Don't leave Jerusalem yet. Wait here for the Father to give you the Holy Spirit, just as I told you he has promised to do. 5 John baptized with water, but in a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.
1.5 Mt 3.11; Mk 1.8; Lk 3.16; Jn 1.33.
Jesus Is Taken to Heaven
6 While the apostles were still with Jesus, they asked him, “Lord, are you now going to give Israel its own king again?”
b 1.6 are you now going to give Israel its own king again?: Or “Are you now going to rule Israel as its king?”
7 Jesus said to them, “You don't need to know the time of those events that only the Father controls. 8 But the Holy Spirit will come upon you and give you power. Then you will tell everyone about me in Jerusalem, in all Judea, in Samaria, and everywhere in the world.”
1.8 Mt 28.19; Mk 16.15; Lk 24.47
9 After Jesus had said this and while they were watching, he was taken up into a cloud. They could not see him,
1.9 Mk 16.19; Lk 24.50
10 but as he went up, they kept looking up into the sky.
Suddenly two men dressed in white clothes were standing there beside them. 11 They said, “Why are you men from Galilee standing here and looking up into the sky? Jesus has been taken to heaven. But he will come back in the same way that you have seen him go.”
Someone To Take the Place of Judas
12-13 The Mount of Olives was about half a mile from Jerusalem. The apostles who had gone there were Peter, John, James, Andrew, Philip, Thomas, Bartholomew, Matthew, James the son of Alphaeus, Simon, known as the Eager One,
c 1.12,13 known as the Eager One: The Greek text has “Zealot,” a name later given to the members of a Jewish group that resisted and fought against the Romans.
and Judas the son of James.
1.12,13 Mt 10.2-4; Mk 3.16-19; Lk 6.14-16.
After the apostles returned to the city, they went upstairs to the room where they had been staying.
