1 And it came to
pass, that, while Apollos was at Corinth, Paul having
passed through the upper coasts came to Ephesus: and
finding certain disciples,
2 He said unto
them, Have ye received the Holy Ghost since ye believed?
And they said unto him, We have not so much as heard
whether there be any Holy Ghost.
3 And he said unto
them, Unto what then were ye baptized? And they said,
Unto John's baptism.
4 Then said Paul,
John verily baptized with the baptism of repentance,
saying unto the people, that they should believe on him
which should come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus.
5 When they heard this,
they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.
6 And when Paul had
laid his hands upon them, the Holy Ghost came on
them; and they spake with tongues, and prophesied.
7 And all the men
were about twelve.
8 And he went into
the synagogue, and spake boldly for the space of three
months, disputing and persuading the things concerning
the kingdom of God.
9 But when divers
were hardened, and believed not, but spake evil of that
way before the multitude, he departed from them, and
separated the disciples, disputing daily in the school of
10 And this
continued by the space of two years; so that all they
which dwelt in Asia heard the word of the Lord Jesus,
both Jews and Greeks.
11 And God wrought
special miracles by the hands of Paul:
12 So that from his
body were brought unto the sick handkerchiefs or aprons,
and the diseases departed from them, and the evil spirits
went out of them.
