The Ascension

Reading: Luke 24:50-53 and Acts 1:1-11

Key Verse: Acts 1:3
[Jesus] after his suffering, he presented himself to them and gave many convincing proofs that he was alive. He appeared to them over a period of forty days and spoke about the kingdom of God.

Before the Holy Spirit could come Jesus had to go. But before he physically left them he time and time and again proved to them the reality of his resurrection. Spending those 40 days teaching them about the kingdom of God.

Dr Luke begins his second volume stating that his gospel record was just the beginning of Jesus work. The founder of other religions completed their work before they died – but Jesus continues to work even now, because he ever lives.
