Acts 1:2-4 The Passion Translation (TPT)
2 Just before he ascended into heaven, he left instructions[a] for the apostles he had chosen by the Holy Spirit.[b] 3 After the sufferings of his cross, Jesus appeared alive many times[c] to these same apostles over a forty-day period.[d] Jesus proved to them with many convincing signs that he had been resurrected.[e]
During these encounters, he taught them the truths of God’s kingdom realm 4 and shared meals with them.[f]
Jesus instructed them, “Don’t leave Jerusalem, but wait here until you receive the gift I told you about, the gift the Father has promised.
