The Ascension of Our Savior
Interwoven Gospels

Now Jesus, being assembled with the disciples, commanded them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the promise of the Father, "Which," He said, "ye heard from Me: for John indeed baptized in water, but ye shall be baptized in the Holy Spirit not many days hence." When therefore they had come together, they asked Him, saying, "Lord, dost Thou at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?" He said to them, "It is not for you to know the times or seasons which the Father hath reserved in His own authority. But ye shall receive power when the Holy Spirit shall come upon you; and ye shall be My witnesses, both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the extreme limit of the earth."

So then the Lord Jesus, after He had spoken these things to them, led them forth till they were opposite Bethany; and He lifted up His hands and blessed them. And it came to pass, as He was blessing them and they were looking at Him, He was parted from them and taken up, and a cloud bore Him up from their sight: and He was carried up into heaven, and sat down at the right hand of God. And while they were gazing intently into the heaven as He was going away, behold, two men stood by them in white raiment; who also said, "Ye men of Galilee, why do ye stand looking into heaven? This Jesus, Who was taken up from you into heaven, shall so return in the manner that ye saw Him going into heaven."

Then they worshipped Him and returned to Jerusalem with great joy, from the mount called Olivet, or Mount of Olives, which is near Jerusalem, a Sabbath's Journey away.
