Luke’s Gospel b cannot e so. It also breaks the continuity f hT ote ext, in a manner that so accomplished a writer as that Evangelist would never have done. I am, therefore, perfectly satisded that it is merely a note of some early editor, and never formed part of St. Luke’s Gospel.-·—F. F.

Inirnhuriimt. 1 THE above narrative I compiled, Theophilus, concerning every-

thing that gesus began to do and 2 teach, fromt e beginning until the day when, having equipped the apostles whom He had selected with Holy

3 Spirit, He ascended: to whom He also presented Himself alive, with many proofs, after His suffering; ap- pearing to them during forty days, and speaking regarding the welfare of

4 the Kingdom of God. And, being in not to remove from jerusalem; but await the promise of the Father, con- cerning which you heard from Me. Because john indeed baptized with water; but you shall be baptized with Holy Spirit not many days from now.’ When they were together, however, i

they asked Him z“ Master, will You at this time restore! the kingdom to He answered

to know times or periods which the Father has reserved at His own absolute disposal. But you shall receive power from the Holy Spirit coming upon you; and you shall be My witnesses in jerusalem, in all jndea and Samaria, and to the bounds of the earth. ¤¤. And saying this, even while they

were looking, He ascended; and a cloud carried Him up from their view. And as they were gazing intently into ro the heavenat His departure, two men in white robes suddenly stood beside Men of Gall- rx lee, why do you stand gazing up into heaven? This jesus, Who has as- cended from you to the heaven, will even return in the same way as you have seen Him depart to the heaven. They then returned to jerusalem 12 from the Mount called Olivet, which is near jerusalem, a Sabbath day’s journey. And when they had entered 13 it, they ascended tothe upper cham- ber, where they were staying; that is ,. Peter and john, james and Andrew, Philip and Thomas, Bartholomew and Matthew, james of Alphaeus and Simon the Zealous, and judas of james. All these were waiting in 14 full union in prayer together, with women, and Mary the mother of jesus, and with His brothers. Ebnustng it Surrznnr in Qtthas. On such an occasion, Ester gtapding 15 up among me brethren (who included about one hundred and twenty names), said: Men, brothers! it was necessary

that the Scripture should be fulfilled , which the Holy Spirit dictated through the mouth of David. concerning judes, who became the guide to those who arrested jesus; because he was enu- merated with us, and obtained ashare in this service? II40 16
