New International Version
beginning from John's baptism to the time when Jesus was taken up from us. For one of these must become a witness with us of his resurrection."
King James Bible
Beginning from the baptism of John, unto that same day that he was taken up from us, must one be ordained to be a witness with us of his resurrection.
Darby Bible Translation

World English Bible
beginning from the baptism of John, to the day that he was received up from us, of these one must become a witness with us of his resurrection."
Young's Literal Translation
beginning from the baptism of John, unto the day in which he was received up from us, one of these to become with us a witness of his rising again.'
Acts 1:22 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Beginning from the baptism of John - From the time that Christ was baptized by John in Jordan; for it was at that time that his public ministry properly began.
Must one be ordained - This translation misleads every reader who cannot examine the original text. There is no term for ordained in the Greek: γενεσθαι, to be, is the only word in the verse to which this interpretation can be applied. The New Testament printed at London, by Robert Barker, the king's printer, in 1615, renders this and the preceding verse more faithfully and more clearly than our common version: Wherefore of these men who have companied with us, all the time that the Lord Jesus was conversant among us, beginning from the baptism of John, unto the day he was taken up from us, must one of them Be Made a witness with us of his resurrection. The word ordained would naturally lead most readers to suppose that some ecclesiastical rite was used on the occasion, such as imposition of hands, etc., although nothing of the kind appears to have been employed.

At that time Jesus came from Nazareth in Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan.
