The disciples were anxious to prove their critics and detractors wrong. The resurrection of Jesus vindicated them. It opened up a new chapter in their lives. “It’s going to be awesome from here on!” They surmised. Huddled around Jesus, they asked, “Lord, are you at this time going to restore the kingdom to Israel?” – Acts 1:8. “Not yet!” Jesus essentially replied to them. Puzzled, the apostles looked at each other. But “stay here in Jerusalem until you have been clothed with power from on high,” Jesus assured them.
