1:1 The former treatise (o. logos) have I made, O Theophilus, of all that
Jesus began both to do and teach,
1:2 Until the day in which he was taken up, after that he through the Holy
Spirit (o. pneuma) had given commandments unto the apostles whom he had chosen:
1:3 To whom also he showed himself alive after his passion by many infallible
proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining
to the kingdom of God:
1:4 And, being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should
not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, says
he, all of you have heard of me.
1:5 For John truly baptized with water; but all of you shall be baptized
with the Holy Spirit (o. pneuma) not many days behind.
1:6 When they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Lord,
will you at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel?
1:7 And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons,
which the Father has put in his own power.
1:8 But all of you shall receive power, after that the Holy Spirit (o. pneuma)
has come upon you: and all of you shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem,
and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
1:9 And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken
up; and a cloud received him out of their sight.
1:10 And while they looked steadfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold,
two men stood by them in white apparel;
1:11 Which also said, All of you men of Galilee, why stand all of you gazing
up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall
so come in like manner as all of you have seen him go into heaven.
1:12 Then returned they unto Jerusalem from the mount called Olivet, which
is from Jerusalem a sabbath day's journey.
1:13 And when they were come in, they went up into an upper room, where abode
both Peter, and James, and John, and Andrew, Philip, and Thomas, Bartholomew,
and Matthew, James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon Zelotes, and Judas the brother
1:14 These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with
the women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brethren.
1:15 And in those days Peter stood up in the midst of the disciples, and
said, (the number of names together were about an hundred and twenty,)
1:16 Men and brethren, this scripture must essentially have been fulfilled,
which the Holy Spirit (o. pneuma) by the mouth of David spoke before concerning
Judas, which was guide to them that took Jesus.
1:17 For he was numbered with us, and had obtained part of this ministry.
1:18 Now this man purchased a field with the reward of iniquity; and falling
headlong, he burst asunder in the midst, and all his bowels gushed out.
1:19 And it was known unto all the dwellers at Jerusalem; insomuch as that
field is called in their proper tongue, Aceldama, that is to say, The field
1:20 For it is written in the book of Psalms, Let his habitation be desolate,
and let no man dwell therein: and his bishoprick let another take.
1:21 Wherefore of these men which have companied with us all the time that
the Lord Jesus went in and out among us,
1:22 Beginning from the baptism of John, unto that same day that he was taken
up from us, must one be ordained to be a witness with us of his resurrection.
1:23 And they appointed two, Joseph called Barsabas, who was surnamed Justus,
1:24 And they prayed, and said, You, Lord, which know the hearts of all men,
show whether of these two you have chosen,
1:25 That he may take part of this ministry and apostleship, from which Judas
by transgression fell, that he might go to his own place.
1:26 And they gave forth their lots; and the lot fell upon Matthias; and
he was numbered with the eleven apostles.
