Paul in Ephesus

Acts 19

1 And it happened, while a Apollos was at Corinth, that Paul, having passed through b the upper regions, came to Ephesus. And finding some disciples 2 he said to them, "Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you believed?" So they said to him, c "We have not so much as heard whether there is a Holy Spirit." 3 And he said to them, "Into what then were you baptized?" So they said, d "Into John's baptism." 4 Then Paul said, e "John indeed baptized with a baptism of repentance, saying to the people that they should believe on Him who would come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus." 5 When they heard this, they were baptized f in the name of the Lord Jesus. 6 And when Paul had g laid hands on them, the Holy Spirit came upon them, and h they spoke with tongues and prophesied. 7 Now the men were about twelve in all.

8 i And he went into the synagogue and spoke boldly for three months, reasoning and persuading j concerning the things of the kingdom of God. 9 But k when some were hardened and did not believe, but spoke evil l of the Way before the multitude, he departed from them and withdrew the disciples, reasoning daily in the school of Tyrannus. 10 And m this continued for two years, so that all who dwelt in Asia heard the word of the Lord Jesus, both Jews and Greeks.
