The Treasury of Scripture Knowledge

Chapter Overview
 
1Christ, preparing his apostles to the beholding of his ascension, gathers them together unto the mount Olivet, commands them to expect in Jerusalem the sending down of the Holy Ghost, promises after a few days to send it, and ascends into heaven in their sight.
10After his ascension they are warned by two angels to depart, and to set their minds upon his second coming.
12They accordingly return, and, giving themselves to prayer, choose Matthias apostle in the place of Judas.
