1And it came to pass, while Apollos was at Corinth, Paul, having passed through the upper districts, came to Ephesus, and finding certain disciples, 2he said to them, Did ye receive the Holy Spirit when ye had believed? And they said to him, We did not even hear if the Holy Spirit was come. 3And he said, To what then were ye baptised? And they said, To the baptism of John. 4And Paul said, John indeed baptised with the baptism of repentance, saying to the people that they should believe on him that was coming after him, that is, on Jesus. 5And when they heard that, they were baptised to the name of the Lord Jesus. 6And Paul having laid his hands on them, the Holy Spirit came upon them, and they spoke with tongues and prophesied. 7And all the men were about twelve. 8And entering into the synagogue, he spoke boldly during three months, reasoning and persuading the things concerning the kingdom of God.
