Acts 1:1-3 New Life Version (NLV)
Luke Writes to Theophilus
1 Dear Theophilus, in my first writings I wrote about all the things Jesus did and taught from the beginning 2 until the day He went to heaven. He spoke to the missionaries through the Holy Spirit. He told those whom He had chosen what they should do. 3 After He had suffered much and then died, He showed Himself alive in many sure ways for forty days. He told them many things about the holy nation of God.
