Frommorning till evening he explained and declared to them the kingdom of God and triedto convince them about Jesus from the Law of Moses and from the Prophets. 24Some wereconvinced by what he said, but others would not believe. 25They disagreed among themselvesand began to leave after Paul had made this final statement: "The Holy Spirit spokethe truth to your forefathers when he said through Isaiah the prophet: 26"`Go to thispeople and say, "You will be ever hearing but never understanding; you will be everseeing but never perceiving." 27For this people's heart has become calloused; theyhardly hear with their ears, and they have closed their eyes. Otherwise they might seewith their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts and turn, and I wouldheal them.' 28"Therefore I want you to know that God's salvation has been sent to theGentiles, and they will listen!" 2930For two whole years Paul stayed there in his ownrented house and welcomed all who came to see him. 31Boldly and without hindrance hepreached the kingdom of God and taught about the Lord Jesus Christ.

Acts 1:1 In my former book, Theophilus, I wrote about all that Jesusbegan to do and to teach 2until the day he was taken up to heaven, aftergiving instructions through the Holy Spirit to the apostles he had chosen. 3After hissuffering, he showed himself to these men and gave many convincing proofs that he wasalive. He appeared to them over a period of forty days and spoke about the kingdom ofGod. 4On one occasion, while he was eating with them, he gave them this command:"Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait for the gift my Father promised, which you haveheard me speak about. 5For John baptized with water, but in a few days you will bebaptized with the Holy Spirit." 6So when they met together, they asked him, "Lord,are you at this time going to restore the kingdom to Israel?" 7He saidto them: "It is not for you to know the times or dates the Father has set by his ownauthority. 8But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you willbe my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth."9After he said this, he was taken up before their very eyes, and a cloud hid him fromtheir sight. 10They were looking intently up into the sky as he was going, when suddenlytwo men dressed in white stood beside them. 11"Men of Galilee," they said,"why do you stand here looking into the sky? This same Jesus, who has been takenfrom you into heaven, will come back in the same way you have seen him go into heaven."
