Luke 24:36-53 American Standard Version

Jesus Appears to His Disciples

36  And as they spake these things, he himself stood in the midst of them, and saith unto them, Peace [be] unto you. 37  But they were terrified and affrighted, and supposed that they beheld a spirit. 38  And he said unto them, Why are ye troubled? and wherefore do questionings arise in your heart? 39  See my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye behold me having. 40  And when he had said this, he showed them his hands and his feet. 41  And while they still disbelieved for joy, and wondered, he said unto them, Have ye here anything to eat? 42  And they gave him a piece of a broiled fish. 43  And he took it, and ate before them. 44  And he said unto them, These are my words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must needs be fulfilled, which are written in the law of Moses, and the prophets, and the psalms, concerning me. 45  Then opened he their mind, that they might understand the scriptures; 46  and he said unto them, Thus it is written, that the Christ should suffer, and rise again from the dead the third day; 47  and that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name unto all the nations, beginning from Jerusalem. 48  Ye are witnesses of these things. 49  And behold, I send forth the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city, until ye be clothed with power from on high.

The Ascension

50  And he led them out until [they were] over against Bethany: and he lifted up his hands, and blessed them. 51  And it came to pass, while he blessed them, he parted from them, and was carried up into heaven. 52  And they worshipped him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy: 53  and were continually in the temple, blessing God.
