Luke 24:50-53; Acts 1:1-11
After Jesus came back to life, He spent many days talking to His friends. One day they went to the top of a hill. “Tell people all over the world about Me,” Jesus said. Jesus promised that the Holy Spirit would come and make them able to do everything Jesus asked them to do.
Then Jesus went up to heaven. Jesus’ friends watched as Jesus went up in the air. Soon Jesus was covered up by clouds. Jesus’ friends couldn’t see Him anymore, but they kept looking up for a while.
Suddenly two angels stood beside them. “Why do you stand here looking into the sky?” They asked. “Jesus will come back someday the same way you saw Him go up into heaven.” Then Jesus’ friends went to Jerusalem to pray and wait for the Holy Spirit to come.
