(A)He presented himself alive to them after his suffering by many proofs, appearing to them during forty days and speaking about the kingdom of God.

And while staying[a] with them (B)he ordered them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the promise of the Father, which, he said, “you heard from me; for (C)John baptized with water, (D)but you will be baptized (E)with[b] the Holy Spirit not many days from now.”

The Ascension

So when they had come together, they asked him, “Lord, (F)will you at this time (G)restore the kingdom to Israel?” He said to them, (H)“It is not for you to know (I)times or seasons that the Father has fixed by his own authority. But you will receive (J)power (K)when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and (L)you will be (M)my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and (N)Samaria, and (O)to the end of the earth.”
