People's Bible Notes for Acts 1:11


Ac 1:11 Ye men of Galilee. The apostles were mostly, if not all, Galileans. This same Jesus . . . shall so come. The cloud received him from their sight. He shall come in the clouds of heaven (Da 7:13 Mt 24:30 26:24).

Discussion for Acts 1

    To 'magnocrat' on Acts ch. 1 - We are not to know who the other women in the upper room were. remember - this is GOD'S word, He dictated it. To accept just what it says without frantically searching for 'unknowns' is - FAITH.
  • Sonja
    there is only 1 God. he is the 1st and the last the beginning and the end. Beside him there is no other. part of getting into heaven is repenting of your sin, being baptized in the NAME of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins and you shall recieve the gift of the Holy Ghost with evidence of speaking in tongues. ( this is not just for certain people it is for everyone) Acts 2:38 - Acts 2:39
  • Osagie
    The book of Acts is a guide book for a true Christian life
  • Magnocrat
    In verse 14 who were the women besides Mary?
  • DIANE
    the book of acts is a tremendous book showing the great power the holy spirit endows us as believers and yielding to God gives us to be witnesses to the great commision Jesus has given us.
  • George V
    The book of acts reveals Christs expectations of the apostles and in so doing us .
    Sadly today I recall the words stated that many , in fact most don't know God . Superficially we know but not as the apostles and Moses did . Seems that prayer and fasting are lacking and as those apostles who came together to seek out gods instruction for them we must do the same .
