The eleven disciples traveled to Galilee,
to the mountain where Jesus had directed them;
and seeing him they worshipped him, but some doubted.
Jesus approaching said to them, "These are my words
which I spoke to you while I was still with you,
that everything written in the law of Moses
and the prophets and psalms about me must be fulfilled."
Then he opened their mind to understand the scriptures;
and he said to them, "Thus it was written
for the Christ to suffer
and rise up from the dead on the third day,
and to be preached in his name
repentance for the forgiveness of sins
to all the nations, beginning from Jerusalem.
"You are witnesses of these things.
Look, I am sending out the promise of my Father upon you;
but sit in the city
until you are dressed with power from on high.
All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.
"Therefore traveling into all the world
preach the good message to all creation
and make disciples of all the nations,
baptizing them in the name of the Father
and the son and the Holy Spirit,
teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.
Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved,
but whoever disbelieves will be condemned.
These signs will accompany those believing:
in my name they will expel demons,
speak in new languages, pick up snakes,
and if they drink anything deadly it will not harm them;
they will put their hands upon the sick,
and they will get well.
Look, I am with you all the days
until the completion of eternity."
After speaking to them
the Lord Jesus led them out as far as Bethany,
and lifting his hands he blessed them.
While he was blessing them, he parted from them
and was taken up into heaven
and sat at the right hand of God.
They returned to Jerusalem with great joy,
and were continually in the temple praising God.
Those going out preached everywhere,
as the Lord was working with them
and confirming the word through the accompanying signs.
There are also many other things which Jesus did,
which if every one were written
I do not think the world would have room
for the books written.
