While Apollos1 was at Corinth,2 Paul took the road through the interior and arrived at Ephesus.3 There he found some disciples
and asked them, "Did you receive the Holy Spirit4 when you believed?" They answered, "No, we have not even heard that there is a Holy Spirit."
So Paul asked, "Then what baptism did you receive?" "John's baptism," they replied.
Paul said, "John's baptism5 was a baptism of repentance. He told the people to believe in the one coming after him, that is, in Jesus."6
On hearing this, they were baptized into the name of the Lord Jesus.7
When Paul placed his hands on them,8 the Holy Spirit came on them,9 and they spoke in tongues10 and prophesied.
There were about twelve men in all.
