1#1Co 1:12; 16:12While Apollos was at Corinth, Paul passed through the upper regions and came to Ephesus. He found some disciples 2#Jn 7:39and said to them, “Have you received the Holy Spirit since you believed?” They said to him, “No, we have not even heard that there is a Holy Spirit.” 3#Ac 18:25; Mt 28:19He said to them, “Into what then were you baptized?” They said, “Into John’s baptism.” 4#Jn 1:7; 1:27Paul said, “John indeed baptized with the baptism of repentance, telling the people that they should believe in the One coming after him, that is, in Christ Jesus.” 5#Ac 8:16; 8:12When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. 6#Ac 2:4; 6:6When Paul had laid his hands on them, the Holy Spirit came on them, and they spoke in other tongues and prophesied. 7There were about twelve men in all. 8#Ac 1:3; 28:23He went into the synagogue and spoke boldly for three months, lecturing and persuading concerning the kingdom of God.
