The Ascension

Acts 1

6 Therefore, when they had come together, they asked Him, saying, "Lord, will You at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?" 7 And He said to them, i "It is not for you to j know times or seasons which the Father has put in His own authority. 8 k "But you shall receive power l when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and m you shall be 1 witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and n Samaria, and to the o end of the earth." 9 p Now when He had spoken these things, while they watched, q He was taken up, and a cloud received Him out of their sight. 10 And while they looked steadfastly toward heaven as He went up, behold, two men stood by them r in white apparel, 11 who also said, "Men of Galilee, why do you stand gazing up into heaven? This same Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, s will so come in like manner as you saw Him go into heaven."
