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.

Rodd's Acts Chapter 1 comment on 1/29/2015, 5:28pm...

Rev ch 21 v 14 talks of the 12 foundations and in them the names of the 12 apostles of the Lamb. So Acts ch 1 is so important because, as verses 21 and 22 prove, Paul cannot be an apostle as he did know Jesus and was NOT a witness to Him, so did NOT meet the essential requirements to be one. Matthias was chosen to replace Judas Paul also has no witness to verify the alleged encounter in the desert of which Jesus, Himself, warns us ie. false christs appearing in the desert. Matt 24 v 5 , v 26 and John 5 v 43 ! Jesus had said that no man would see Him again because He was returning to the Father..yet Paul is self-proclaimed and says he met Jesus and was the last to see Him. 1 Cor 9 v 1 and ch 15 v 8. Luke 24 v 51 tells us otherwise. Between Genesis and Revelation are many texts which point to Paul as being an imposter and Acts ch 1 proves this to be true. Paul 's confusion has caused almost the whole church to follow him rather than Jesus, despite Jesus ' telling us that He, alone, is our Rabbi Matt ch 23 v 8 and 10..and that we should follow Him Paul contradicts Jesus over major issues eg the Sabbath and the law and grace etc ....far too much to write about here - but I would be pleased to add much much more !!!


Jacob's Acts Chapter 1 comment on 1/22/2015, 3:33pm...

You have to get the Kingdoms right. The Kingdom of heaven can suffer violence and the violent can take it by force see Matt 11:12. The Kingdom of God is entered by the new birth upon believing on Jesus Christ by the gospel revealed to Paul and it is found laid out in 1 Cor 15:1-4. Paul was BORN before his water baptism see 1 Cor 15:8. And Ananias called him BROTHER Saul in Acts 9:17 before water baptism in verse 18. There are no Christians in Acts 2. That term doesn 't even show up until Acts 11:26. Those saved before the gospel of the Grace of God were added to the Church because the N.T. had not been written and the mystery was not yet revealed to the apostle Paul. You can 't be saved by Acts 2:38 today. That 's the way to hell. You are saved by obeying the gospel found in 1 Cor 15:1-4. Rom 16:26 says its the OBEDIENCE OF FAITH. Rom 10:16 But they have not all OBEYED the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath BELIEVED our report?

Deaon, Jude Judas of Mark 6 was not the same person as Judas Iscariot. That Judas was the son of Simon and was from Kerioth.


Joni G's Acts Chapter 1 comment on 1/11/2015, 7:21am...

Deaon,according to Mark 6:3, Judas and James were brothers of Jesus. Judas, also called Jude wrote the book of Jude.

Joni G's Acts Chapter 1 comment on 1/10/2015, 12:32pm...

I wonder why Paul when retelling his story in Acts 22:16 said that he was told by Aninias to arise and be baptized, calling on His Jesus name? The kingdom is also synonymous with the church. We are added to the church, kingdom after we become Christians. Yes, we most certainly believe the whole Bible. Jacob is right when he says who were they talking to. The Jews who had been God 's chosen people needed to believe in Jesus as the Messiah and we are grafted in and become part of the Kingdom, church after becoming Christians. And of course the kingdom is spiritual. Colossians 1:12-15. We are spiritually one with Christ after obeying the gospel. Dwelling in our hearts through faith. Ephesians 3:17 and Ephesians 4:1-7


Jacob's Acts Chapter 1 comment on 1/09/2015, 8:19am...

We we believe the whole bible but take in consideration to whom it is speaking. Before the cross is O.T. doctrine Heb 9:17. The verse you quoted said covet to PROPHESY. So according to that verse one should ardently want to prophesy. The speaking in tongues was needed at Corinth because Corinth see Acts 18:1 had lots of Jews see verse 2 and there was a synagoge beside the place where they were meeting and Jews require a sign 1 Cor 1:22 and tongues are for a SIGN 1 Cor 14:22. Those are verses in their context. Mark 16 and Acts 2 has baptism associated with salvation because it is the Kingdom gospel being preached by a man names Simon Peter who didn 't even know of the body of Christ mystery. This was revealed to the Apostle Paul Eph 3:1-9. They said what must WE do in Acts 2. This is as a Nation because the KINGDOM is being offered to the JEWISH NATION see Acts 3:19, Rom 11:26-29, Heb 8:8-12, Jer 31:33-34, 33:8,50:20, Dan 9:24. No one is saved like Acts 2:38 again. Acts 16:31 shows how an individual is saved. What must I do to be SAVED? Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and THOU SHALT BE SAVED.


Bill's Acts Chapter 1 comment about verse 3 on 1/08/2015, 2:43am...

In His final forty days on earth before ascending to heaven, Jesus spoke to His disciples of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God Acts 1:3 . His future Messianic kingdom on earth was the burden of His heart from the very start of His public ministry repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand and it was on His heart to the very end. Yet, His focus was not merely on the fact of the millennial kingdom or the nature of it. Much had already been said by the Old Testament prophets concerning the coming kingdom. Repeatedly, through the synoptic gospels, we find Jesus honing in on the requirements for living the kingdom way of life here and now, which then qualifies one to inherit the coming millennial kingdom.
