ASCENSION TEXTS - TEXTOS QUE FALAM SOBRE A ASCENSÃO
É na Bíblia que temos registos da Ascensão de Jesus ao céu.
It is in the Bible that we can have details about the Ascension of Christ into heaven.
Lucas/Luke 24: 50-53»
50-53 Jesus levou-os pelo caminho de Betânia e, levantando as mãos para o céu, abençoou-os. Então afastou-se deles e elevou-se até ao céu. Eles adoraram-no e regressaram a Jerusalém, cheios de alegria. E estavam continuamente no templo, louvando Deus.
50 And He led them out as far as Bethany, and He lifted up His hands and blessed them. 51 Now it came to pass, while He blessed them, that He was parted from them and carried up into heaven. 52 And they worshiped Him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy, 53 and were continually in the temple praising and blessing God.
Atos/Acts 1: 9-11»
Jesus sobe ao Céu
9 Tendo dito isso, foi elevado às alturas enquanto eles olhavam, e uma nuvem o encobriu da vista deles. 10 E eles ficaram com os olhos fixos no céu enquanto ele subia. De repente surgiram diante deles dois homens vestidos de branco, 11 que lhes disseram: “Galileus, por que vocês estão olhando para o céu? Este mesmo Jesus, que dentre vocês foi elevado aos céus, voltará da mesma forma, com as nuvens, tal como o viram subir”.
Jesus Ascends to Heaven
9 Now when He had spoken these things, while they watched, He was taken up, and a cloud received Him out of their sight. 10 And while they looked steadfastly toward heaven as He went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel, 11 who also said, “Men of Galilee, why do you stand gazing up into heaven? This same Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will so come in like manner as you saw Him go into heaven.”
