Luke 24:44 And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me. 45: Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures, 46: And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day: 47: And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all 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 tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high. 50: And he led them out as far as to Bethany, and he lifted up his hands, and blessed them. 51: And it came to pass, while he blessed them, he was parted from them, and carried up into heaven. 52: And they worshipped him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy: 53: And were continually in the temple, praising and blessing God. Amen.
