Bible: Acts 1:8-14

1:8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the farthest parts 1  of the earth.” 1:9 After 2  he had said this, while they were watching, he was lifted up and a cloud hid him from their sight. 1:10 As 3  they were still staring into the sky while he was going, suddenly 4  two men in white clothing stood near them 1:11 and said, “Men of Galilee, why do you stand here 5  looking up into the sky? This same Jesus who has been taken up from you into heaven 6  will come back in the same way you saw him go into heaven.”

1:12 Then they returned to Jerusalem 7  from the mountain 8  called the Mount of Olives 9  (which is near Jerusalem, a Sabbath day’s journey 10  away). 1:13 When 11  they had entered Jerusalem, 12  they went to the upstairs room where they were staying. Peter 13  and John, and James, and Andrew, Philip and Thomas, Bartholomew and Matthew, James son of Alphaeus and Simon the Zealot, and Judas son of James were there. 14  1:14 All these continued together in prayer with one mind, together with the women, along with Mary the mother of Jesus, and his brothers. 15
