46Then He said to them, #Ps. 22; Hos. 6:2; Luke 11:29, 30; Acts 17:3“Thus it is written, and thus it was necessary for the Christ to suffer and to rise from the dead the third day, 47and that repentance and #Dan. 9:24; Acts 5:31; 10:43; 13:38; 26:18remission of sins should be preached in His name #(Ps. 22:27; Jer. 31:34; Mic. 4:2)to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. 48And #(Acts 1:8); 1 Pet. 5:1you are witnesses of these things. 49#Is. 44:3; Joel 2:28; Acts 2:4Behold, I send the Promise of My Father upon you; but tarry in the city of Jerusalem until you are endued with power from on high.”
50And He led them out #Matt. 21:17; Acts 1:12as far as Bethany, and He lifted up His hands and blessed them. 51#Ps. 68:18; 110:1; Mark 16:19; Acts 1:9–11Now it came to pass, while He blessed them, that He was parted from them and carried up into heaven. 52#Matt. 28:9And they worshiped Him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy, 53and were continually #Acts 2:46in the temple praising and blessing God. Amen.
