And as Paul traveled overland he came to Ephesus. He spoke to the disciples: Have you received the Holy Spirit? They said they had never heard of it. Then how were you baptized? - By John the Baptist. But Paul said: John baptized with the baptism of penance and said to the people that they should believe in him who would come after him in Jesus! And Paul persuaded them and held his hands over them so that the Holy Spirit came upon them. Then he went to the synagogue and preached for three months about the kingdom of God till the attitude of some of the congregation hardened into unbelief. As soon as they began attacking the Way in public, he broke with them and took his disciples apart to hold daily discussions in the lecture room of Tyrannus. This went on for two years, with the result that all the inhabitants of Asia, both Jews and Greeks, were able to hear the word of the Lord. So remarkable were the miracles worked by God at Paul's hands.
