Acts 1:1-3 New Matthew Bible (NMB)
The ascension of Christ. Matthias is chosen in Judas’ place.
1 In the former treatise (dear friend Theophilus), I have written of all that Jesus began to do and teach 2 until the day in which he was taken up, after he through the Holy Spirit had given commandments to the apostles whom he had chosen. 3 To them also he showed himself alive after his passion by many certain proofs, appearing to them during forty days and speaking of the kingdom of God.
