Paul Finds Disciples of John the Baptist in Ephesus

1 And it happened that [while] Apollos was in Corinth, Paul traveled through the inland regions [and]a cameb to Ephesus and found some disciples. 2 And he said to them, "Did you receive the Holy Spirit [when you]c believed?" And they [said] to him, "But we have not even heard that there is a Holy Spirit!" 3 And he said, "Into what then were you baptized?" And they said, "Into the baptism of John." 4 And Paul said, "John baptized [with] a baptism of repentance, telling the people that they should believe in the one who was to come after him--that is, in Jesus." 5 And [when they]d heard [this],e they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. 6 And [when]f Paul laid handsg on them, the Holy Spirit came upon them and they began to speakh in tongues and to prophesy. 7 (Now the total [number] [of] men was about twelve.) 8 So he entered into the synagogue [and]i was speaking boldly for three months, discussing and attempting to convincej [them]k concerningl the kingdom of God. 9 But when some became hardened and were disobedient, reviling the Way before the congregation, he departed from them [and]m took away the disciples, leading discussions every day in the lecture hall of Tyrannus. 10 And this took place for two years, so that all who lived in Asian heard the word of the Lord, both Jews and Greeks.
