Bible Cliff’s Notes (My dog ate my Bible!)
Jesus gives the disciples the power to understand the scriptures clearly. He claims he is given the ability to impart this power to them from God. He ascends to heaven and they wait for further instruction in Jerusalem, praising both God and Jesus in the meantime.
The disciples are to be empowered by the Holy Spirit soon. They want to know when; Jesus tells them that timing isn’t any of their business. Then Jesus ascends into heaven.
Psalm 47 or Psalm 93
Both psalms of praise, depicting God as ruler on high, and as a God that uplifts creation.
Paul’s letter to the Christians in Ephesus proclaims the authority and lordship of Jesus over all of creation, as endowed by God. He also prays that they will receive the power of wisdom from God.
