Acts of Apostles

<< Acts 1 >>
King James Bible with Strong's Numbers


1 The former __ treatise have I made O Theophilus of all that Jesus began both to do and teach 2 Until the day in which he was taken up after that he through the Holy Ghost had given commandments unto the apostles whom he had chosen 3 To whom also he shewed himself alive after his passion by many infallible proofs being seen of them __ forty days and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God 4 And being assembled together with them commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem but wait for the promise of the Father which saith he ye have heard of me 5 For John truly baptized with water but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many __ days hence

6 When they therefore were come together they asked of him saying Lord __ wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel 7 And he said unto them It is not for you to know the times or the seasons which the Father hath put in his own power 8 But ye shall receive power after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem and in all Judaea and in Samaria and unto the uttermost part of the earth

9 And when he had spoken these things while they beheld he was taken up and a cloud received him out of their sight 10 And while they looked stedfastly __ toward heaven as he went up behold two men stood by them in white apparel 11 Which also said Ye men of Galilee why stand ye gazing up into heaven this same Jesus which is taken up from you into heaven shall ">so come in like manner as __ ye have seen him go into heaven

12 Then returned they unto Jerusalem from the mount called Olivet which is from Jerusalem a sabbath day's journey __ 13 And when they were come in they went up into an upper room where abode __ both Peter and James and John and Andrew Philip and Thomas Bartholomew and Matthew James the son of Alphaeus and Simon Zelotes and Judas the brother of James 14 These all continued __ with one accord in prayer and supplication with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus and with his brethren

15 And in those days Peter stood up in the midst of the disciples and said the number of names together __ were about an hundred and twenty 16 Men and brethren this scripture must needs have been fulfilled which the Holy Ghost by the mouth of David spake before concerning Judas which was guide to them that took Jesus 17 For he was numbered with us and had obtained part of this ministry 18 Now __ this man purchased a field with the reward of iniquity and falling headlong he burst asunder in the midst and all his bowels gushed out 19 And it was known unto all the dwellers at Jerusalem insomuch as that field is called in their proper tongue Aceldama that is to say The field of blood

20 For it is written in the book of Psalms Let his habitation be desolate and let no man dwell therein __ and his bishoprick let another take

21 Wherefore of these men which have companied with us all the time that __ the Lord Jesus went in and out among us 22 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 23 And they appointed two Joseph called Barsabas who was surnamed Justus and Matthias 24 And they prayed and said Thou Lord which knowest the hearts of all men shew whether __ of these two thou hast chosen 25 That he may take part of this ministry and apostleship from which Judas by transgression fell that he might go to his own place 26 And they gave forth their lots and the lot fell upon Matthias and he was numbered with the eleven apostles

<< Acts 2 >>
King James Bible with Strong's Numbers


1 And when the day of Pentecost was fully come they were all with one accord in one place 2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind and it filled all the house where they were sitting 3 And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire and it sat upon each __ of them 4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost and began to speak with other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance

(Note This Fulfiled Acts 1 Verse 5—States 5 because John, indeed, baptized with water, but YOU will be baptized in holy spirit not many days after this.” (That came to be 10 days) or 50 days from Jesus’ ressurrection) The baptism that Jesus’ disciples performed before Pentecost was the same as that of John and his disciples, namely, for the purpose of symbolizing repentance in preparation for the promised Messiah. Had Jesus himself baptized he could not logically have done so in preparation for himself. He would therefore have been obliged to begin something new, a baptism in his own name, the time for which did not arrive until the day of Pentecost.--Thus we have ample and compelling reasons why Jesus Christ, when on earth, left the baptizing in water in symbol of repentance to his disciples.

5 And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews devout men out of every nation under heaven 6 Now when this was noised abroad the multitude came together and were confounded because that every man heard them speak in his own language 7 And they were all amazed and marvelled saying one to another __ Behold are not all these which speak Galilaeans 8 And how hear we every man in our own tongue wherein __ we were born 9 Parthians and Medes and Elamites and the dwellers in Mesopotamia and in Judaea and Cappadocia in Pontus and Asia 10  Phrygia and __ Pamphylia in Egypt and in the parts of Libya about Cyrene and strangers of Rome __ Jews and __ proselytes 11 Cretes and Arabians we do hear them speak in our tongues the wonderful works of God 12 And they were all amazed and were in doubt saying one to another What meaneth __ __ this 13  Others mocking said These men are full of new wine

14 But Peter standing up with the eleven lifted up his voice and said unto them Ye men of Judaea and all ye that dwell at Jerusalem be this known unto you and hearken to my words 15 For these are not drunken as ye suppose seeing it is but the third hour of the day 16 But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel

17 And it shall come to pass in the last days saith God I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy and your young men shall see visions and your old men shall dream dreams

18 And __ on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit and they shall prophesy

19 And I will shew wonders in heaven above and signs in the earth beneath blood and fire and vapour of smoke

20 The sun shall be turned into darkness and the moon into blood before __ that great and notable day of the Lord come

21 And it shall come to pass that whosoever __ __ shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved

22 Ye men of Israel hear these words Jesus of Nazareth a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs which God did by him in the midst of you as ye yourselves also know 23 Him being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God ye have taken and by wicked hands have crucified and slain 24 Whom God hath raised up having loosed the pains of death because it was not possible that he should be holden of it

25 For David speaketh concerning him I foresaw the Lord always __ before my face for he is on my right hand that I should not be moved

26 Therefore __ did my heart rejoice and my tongue was glad moreover __ also my flesh shall rest in hope

27 Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption

28 Thou hast made known to me the ways of life thou shalt make me full of joy with thy countenance

29 Men and brethren let me freely __ speak unto you of the patriarch David that he is both dead and buried and his sepulchre is with us unto this day 30 Therefore being a prophet and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him that of the fruit of his loins according to the flesh he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne 31 He seeing this before spake of the resurrection of Christ that his soul was not left in hell neither his flesh did see corruption 32 This Jesus hath God raised up whereof we all are witnesses 33 Therefore being by the right hand of God exalted and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost he hath shed forth this which ye now see and hear

34 For David is not ascended into the heavens but he saith himself The LORD said unto my Lord Sit thou on my right hand

35 Until I make __ thy foes thy footstool __ 36 Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly that God hath made that same Jesus whom ye have crucified both Lord and Christ

37 Now when they heard this they were pricked in their heart and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles Men and brethren what shall we do 38 Then Peter said unto them Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost 39 For the promise is unto you and to your children and to all that are afar off __ even as many as the Lord our God shall call __ 40 And with many other words did he testify and exhort saying Save yourselves from this untoward generation 41 Then __ they that gladly received his word were baptized and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls 42 And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship and in breaking of bread and in prayers

43 And fear came upon every soul and many wonders and signs were done by the apostles 44 And all that believed were together __ and had all things common 45 And sold their possessions and goods and parted them to all men as every man had __ need 46 And they continuing daily __ with one accord in the temple and breaking bread from house to house did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart 47 Praising God and having favour with all the people And the Lord added to the church daily __ such as should be saved


2001 Translation

Matt 28:16-20 However, the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had arranged [to meet] them. 17 And when they saw him, they bowed low… but some were doubtful. 18 Then, coming toward them, Jesus spoke, saying, ‘All power (or authority) has been given me in heaven and on earth. 19 So, go and make disciples in all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Breath, 20 teaching them to obey all the things that I commanded you. And {Look!} I’ll be with you every day until the end of the age.’

Chapter 1 Acts

1 Theophilus; This is the first time I’ve put together all of the things that Jesus did and taught 2 up to the day he was taken, and after he gave commandments to the Apostles who he selected by [God’s] Holy Breath. 3 He gave them so much proof that he was alive after what he suffered, and they saw him for forty days as he told them things about the Kingdom of God.

4 And when he met with them, he gave them the orders, ‘Don’t leave Jerusalem, but keep waiting for the promise that I told you would come from the Father. 5 Because, although John baptized with water, in just a few days you will be baptized in [God’s] Holy Breath.’

6 Then, when they all met with him they asked, ‘Lord, are you going to return the Kingdom to Israel now?’

7 But he said, ‘It isn’t your business to know the times and periods that the Father is in charge of. 8 You will receive power when the Holy Breath comes over you, and you will be witnesses of me in Jerusalem, all of Judea, Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.’

9 And after he said these things, while they were still looking at him, a cloud lifted him out of sight. 10 And as they stood there staring into the sky watching him go, {Look!} two men in white clothes stood beside them and said, 11 ‘Men of Galilee; Why are you standing and looking up in the sky? This Jesus who was taken from you into heaven, will return to you the same way that you saw him going into the sky.’

12 Then they returned to Jerusalem from the hill nearby (called the Mount of Olives), which is the [maximum] legal traveling distance from Jerusalem on a Sabbath. 13And when they entered [the city], they all went to the upper room where they (Peter, John, James, Andrew, Philip, Thomas, BarTholomew ([NathanaEl]), Matthew, James [the son] of AlphaEus, Simon the zealous one, and Judas [the son] of James [or ThadDaeus]) were staying. 14 They were all united in thought and purpose as they continued praying, along with some women who were gathered there with Mary (the mother of Jesus), and his brothers.

15 It was during this period that Peter stood up in the midst of the brothers (about a hundred and twenty people in all) and said, 16 ‘Men! Brothers! The scripture had to be fulfilled (which [God’s] Holy Breath foretold through David’s mouth) about Judas, who guided those who arrested Jesus, 17 although he had been one of us and he had a share in this service. 18 The wage he was paid for his wickedness was used to purchase a field, into the middle of which he fell headfirst and burst, causing his intestines to pour out. 19 So, that field has become known to everyone living in Jerusalem as AkelDama (Field of Blood).

20 So now; It’s written in the book of Psalms: Let the place where he lives become desolate and let no one else live there; and give his office of oversight to someone else. 21 So, it’s important that one of the men who has been with us the entire time that the Lord Jesus carried out all of his activities – 22 starting with his baptism by John until the day he was taken up from us – and [someone] who witnessed his resurrection, should become one of us.’

23 So,they asked two to stand up: Joseph (who is called BarSabbas and was surnamed Justus]) and Matthias. 24 Then they prayed, saying, ‘O Lord, You who know the hearts of everyone, so show us which of these two You’ve chosen 25 to receive the position and Apostleship that Judas left in order to go his own way.’ 26 Then they gave each of lots, and the selected lot fell to Matthias. As the result, he was considered as being with the eleven Apostles.

Chapter 2

1 Now, toward the end of the day of Pentecost, while they were all there observing that celebration, 2 there was a noise that suddenly came from the sky. It sounded like a violent wind and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. 3 Then they saw what looked like tongues of fire, which were distributed so that one sat upon each of them. 4 And they all became filled with [God’s] Holy Breath and started speaking in different languages, saying whatever the Breath was telling them to say.

5 At the time, there were reverent Jews from every nation under the sky who were living in Jerusalem. 6 So when this sound happened, a huge crowd gathered and they were bewildered, because they each heard one of them speaking in his own language. 7 They were astonished and began to wonder and say, ‘These people who are talking are all Galileans, aren’t they? 8 So, how is it that we are each hearing our own native language being spoken?’

9 [There were] Parthinians, Medes, Elamites, those from MesoPotamia, Judea, CappaDocia, Pontus, Asia, 10 Phrygia, PamPhylia, Egypt, from parts of Libya Cyrene, travelers from Rome (Jews and proselytes), 11 Cretans, and Arabians. [They said]: ‘We hear them talking about the wonderful things of God in our own languages!’

12 Yes, they were all astonished and confused. And they asked each other, ‘What’s this all about?’ 13 However, others joked about them saying, ‘They’re full of sweet wine.’

14 But Peter stood up beside the eleven, raised his voice, and told them this: ‘Men of Judea and all you who live in Jerusalem; I want you to know something… Listen to what I’m telling you! 15 They really aren’t drunk as you think, because it’s only the third hour of the day. 16 What’s happening is the thing that was said through the Prophet Joel, 17 where God said, In the last days, I will pour out some of my Breath on all flesh, and your sons and daughters will prophesy; your young men will have visions; and your old men will dream dreams. 18 In fact, I will pour out some of My Breath in those days, and My male and female slaves will prophesy. 19 And I will send omens from the skies above and signs to the earth belowblood, fire, and a smoky mist. 20 Before the great and shining day of the Lord arrives, the sun will be changed into darkness and the moon into blood. 21 And everyone who calls on the Name of the Lord will be saved.’

22 ‘Men of Israel, listen to these words: Jesus the Nazarene was a man who was shown to you by God with power, omens, and signs that God performed through him in your midst, as you already know. 23 Yes, you gave this person (who received his advice and his ability to see the future from God) over to the hands of men who were without Law and you nailed him up. 24 But God resurrected him, freeing him from the cords of death, because it wasn’t possible for [death] to hold him.

25 ‘Then David said this about him: I‘ve put Jehovah before me always. And since He’s at my right hand, I will never be shaken. 26 For, my heart is cheerful, and with my tongue I rejoice; so my body will rest in hope. 27 You won’t abandon me in the grave, and You won’t allow Your loyal one to see corruption. 28 You’ve shown me the ways of life, and Youll fill me with joy from Your face.

29 ‘Men! Brothers! It’s good to speak to you openly about the patriarch David, for he died, was buried, and his tomb is still with us today. 30 Yet he was a Prophet, and he knew that God swore an oath to him that He would put someone on his throne that was the fruit of his loins. 31 So [David] looked into the future and spoke about the resurrection of the Anointed One… that he wouldn’t be abandoned in the grave and that his flesh wouldn’t see corruption.

32 ‘Then this Jesus was resurrected by God, and we are all witnesses to that… 33 he was lifted to God’s right hand, where he received the Holy Breath (which the Father had promised). And he’s the one who has poured out all of this that you’re seeing and hearing.

34 ‘Now, David didn’t go to heaven, but he said: Jehovah said to my Lord; Sit at my right hand 35 until I set your enemies as a stool for your feet. 36 So, let the entire House of Israel know for sure that God made Jesus (whom you impaled) the Lord and Anointed One.

37 Well when they heard this, they were stabbed to the heart, and they asked Peter and the other Apostles, ‘Men! Brothers! What should we do?’

38 Then Peter told them, ‘Repent, and each of you get baptized in the name of Jesus the Anointed One, so your sins can be forgiven, and then you’ll receive the gift of the Holy Breath. 39 That’s a promise to you, to your children, and to all those who are far away… to everyone who Jehovah our God calls to Himself.’

40 So, he went on and witnessed to them a lot more, and advised them, ‘Get saved from this crooked generation.’ 41 Then those who welcomed his words were baptized, and about three-thousand people were added that day. 42 These continued to attend, listening to the Apostles as they taught (they all participated), and sharing in meals and prayers. 43 But every one there started to become frightened because of the signs and omens that came through the Apostles.

44 Thereafter, all who became believers shared whatever they had; 45 they sold their belongings and properties and distributed the proceeds to whoever was in need. 46 And they all agreed to go to the Temple daily, as they ate their meals in private homes… eating the food happily and with a sincere heart, 47 praising God, and finding favor with everyone. And all the while, the Lord kept adding the newly-saved to them daily.
