1 Revised Standard Version Passage

6So when they had come together, they asked him, "Lord, will you at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?"The Ascension of Jesus Ac.1.6-11 Passover, c.30ce (Mount of Olives, Jerusalem)
7He said to them, "It is not for you to know times or seasons which the Father has fixed by his own authority. 
8But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Sama'ria and to the end of the earth." 
9And when he had said this, as they were looking on, he was lifted up, and a cloud took him out of their sight. 
10And while they were gazing into heaven as he went, behold, two men stood by them in white robes, 
11and said, "Men of Galilee, why do you stand looking into heaven? This Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will come in the same way as you saw him go into heaven."
