1 The former treatise haue I made, O Theophilus, of al that Iesus began both to doe and teach,

2 Untill the day in which hee was taken vp, after that he through the holy Ghost had giuen commaundements vnto the Apostles, whom he had chosen.

3 To whom also he shewed himselfe aliue after his passion, by many infallible proofes, being seene of them fourty dayes, and speaking of the things perteining to the kingdome of God:

4 And being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Hierusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith he, ye haue heard of me.

5 For Iohn truely baptized with water, but ye shall be baptized with the holy Ghost, not many dayes hence.

6 When they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore againe the kingdome to Israel?

7 And he said vnto them, It is not for you to knowe the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his owne power.

8 But ye shall receiue power after that the holy Ghost is come vpon you, and ye shall be witnesses vnto me, both in Hierusalem, and in all Iudea, and in Samaria, and vnto the vttermost part of the earth.

9 And when hee had spoken these things, while they beheld, hee was taken vp, and a cloud receiued him out of their sight.

10 And while they looked stedfastly toward heauen, as he went vp, behold, two men stood by them in white apparell,

11 Which also said, Yee men of Galililee, why stand yee gazing vp into heauen? This same Iesus, which is taken vp from you into heauen, shall so come, in like maner as yee haue seene him goe into heauen.

12 Then returned they vnto Hierusalem, from the mount called Oliuet, which is from Hierusalem a Sabbath dayes iourney.

13 And when they were come in, they went vp into an vpper roome, where abode both Peter & Iames, & Iohn, and Andrew, Philip, and Thomas, Bartholomew, and Matthew, Iames the sonne of Alpheus, and Simon Zelotes, and Iudas the brother of Iames.

14 These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women, and Mary the mother of Iesus, and with his brethen.

15 And in those dayes Peter stood vp in the mids of the disciples, and said, (The number of names together were about an hundred and twentie)

16 Men and brethren, This Scripture must needs haue beene fulfilled, which the holy Ghost by the mouth of Dauid spake before concerning Iudas, which was guide to them þt took Iesus.

17 For hee was numbred with vs, and had obtained part of this ministerie.

18 Now this man purchased a field with the reward of iniquity, and falling headlong, he burst asunder in the mids, and all his bowels gushed out.

19 And it was knowen vnto all the dwellers at Hierusalem, insomuch as that field is called in their proper tongue, Aceldama, that is to say, The field of blood.

20 For it is written in the booke of Psalmes, Let his habitation be desolate, and let no man dwell therein: And his Bishopricke let another take.

21 Wherefore of these men which haue companied with vs all the time that the Lord Iesus went in and out among vs,

22 Beginning from the baptisme of Iohn, vnto that same day that he was taken vp from vs, must one be ordained to be a witnesse with vs of his resurrection.

23 And they appointed two, Ioseph called Barsabas, who was surnamed Iustus, and Matthias.

24 And they prayed, and said, Thou Lord, which knowest the hearts of all men, shew whether of these two thou hast chosen,

25 That hee may take part of this ministerie and Apostleship, from which Iudas by transgression fell, that hee might goe to his owne place.

26 And they gaue foorth their lots, and the lot fell vpon Matthias, and hee was numbred with the eleuen Apostles.

Tobechukwu Nwamaradi's Acts Chapter 1 comment about verse 8 on 5/09/2015, 3:00pm...

But ye shall receive power, note the word "receive " which means we can reject. when we receive Him, he gives us power to execute Christ 's commission, including preaching the gospel, marching upon serpents and scorpions, healing the sick, raising the dead etc. these things can 't be done without power but not the power of man.


Bailey (basil) Mudge's Acts Chapter 1 comment on 4/27/2015, 8:40pm...

Acs1:6 Acts Chapter 1-7 deal with the Bona-fide offer of the Literal, earthly Jewish, physical Davidic Kingdom, promised Israel. the Nation stumbled but did not fall at the Cross


Rev. Tim George's Acts Chapter 1 comment about verse 11 on 4/19/2015, 10:34am...

The men of Galilee are gazing into heaven looking at Jesus as He is caught up into the clouds to be with the Father in glory, and while the disciples are looking the angels said, ye men, the same Jesus shall so descend from heaven in the clouds. The catching away of the saints, will be in the clouds, when Jesus shouts, at the last trumpet blast, the dead in Christ will rise first, then we who are alive and remain, shall be caught up to be with the Lord in the air. This is the secret coming of the Lord, and not the second coming, where He will be riding on the clouds, and all the tribes on earth will see Him. The secret coming, is when only the saints, those in the grave, and those living shall see Him.


Lilian's Acts Chapter 1 comment on 4/02/2015, 6:27am...

Just to correct my comments it should be John 3:16 For God so love the world that he gave his only begotten Son he who believes in him will not be perish but have everlasting life. John 14:16 And i will pray to the Father and he shall give you another comforter that he may abide with you forever Amen and Praised God


Lilian's Acts Chapter 1 comment on 4/02/2015, 6:18am...

Jesus himself is the word of God. Our heavenly manna is the word of God he who ates them will have eternal life and will be saved. Thanks to Jesus for his perfect obedience to the Father in fullfilling the scriptures and bringing the message to us in order for us to be save from the defeated enemy. John 14:16 For God so love the world that he gave his only begotten Son Jesus Christ he who believes in him will not be perish but have eternal life. God is so faithful to his promises that goodness and mercy will always follow us. We are now live because of his forgiveness. There is no other Jehovah Jireh - The Provider, Jehovah Rapha -The Healer, Jehovah Shalon - Our Peace. Thanks be to God and to Jesus for loving us unconditionally. Praised Jesus and thank him for he is worthy to be praised. Jesus loves you. Amen


Nicola's Acts Chapter 1 comment about verse 26 on 3/30/2015, 11:55am...

They cast lot, a sort of taking a gamble and God approve it. Sometimes God give us free choice and then stamp His approval on it.


Jacob's Acts Chapter 1 comment on 3/11/2015, 12:53pm...

I want to be filled with doctrine because it comes from the Scripture and the Scriptures are Spirit Jn 6:63 and learning doctrine from those Spirit words will fill a Christian with the Spirit. Doctrine is important to God. Titus 2:1 But speak thou the things which become sound doctrine: 1 Timothy 1:3 As I besought thee to abide still at Ephesus, when I went into Macedonia, that thou mightest charge some that they teach no other doctrine, 1 Timothy 1:10 For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine 1 Timothy 4:16 Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee.2 Timothy 4:3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound DOCTRINE but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears
