Luke 24:36-53 Darby’s Translation

Jesus Appears to His Disciples

36  And as they were saying these things, he himself stood in their midst, and says to them, Peace [be] unto you. 37  But they, being confounded and being frightened, supposed they beheld a spirit. 38  And he said to them, Why are ye troubled? and why are thoughts rising in your hearts? 39  behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself. Handle me and see, for a spirit has not flesh and bones as ye see me having. 40  And having said this he shewed them his hands and his feet. 41  But while they yet did not believe for joy, and were wondering, he said to them, Have ye anything here to eat? 42  And they gave him part of a broiled fish and of a honeycomb; 43  and he took it and ate before them. 44  And he said to them, These [are] the words which I spoke to you while I was yet with you, that all that is written concerning me in the law of Moses and prophets and psalms must be fulfilled. 45  Then he opened their understanding to understand the scriptures, 46  and said to them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved the Christ to suffer, and to rise from among the dead the third day; 47  and that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name to all the nations beginning at Jerusalem. 48  And ye are witnesses of these things. 49  And behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you; but do ye remain in the city till ye be clothed with power from on high.

The Ascension

50  And he led them out as far as Bethany, and having lifted up his hands, he blessed them. 51  And it came to pass as he was blessing them, he was separated from them and was carried up into heaven. 52  And they, having done him homage, returned to Jerusalem with great joy, 53  and were continually in the temple praising and blessing God.
