1While Apollos was at Corinth, Paul traveled through the upper region and came to Ephesus. He found some disciples 2and said to them, “Did you receive the Ruach ha-Kodesh when you believed?” They replied to him, “No, we’ve never even heard that there is a Ruach ha-Kodesh. 3He said, “Into what were you immersed?” They said, “Into John’s immersion.” 4Paul said, “John immersed with an immersion of repentance, telling the people that they should believe in the One coming after him—that is, in Yeshua.” 5When they heard this, they were immersed in the name of the Lord Yeshua. 6And when Paul laid hands upon them, the Ruach ha-Kodesh came upon them, and they began speaking in tongues and prophesying. 7In all, there were about twelve men. 8Paul went into the synagogue and for three months spoke boldly, debating and persuading them about the kingdom of God.
