Conversion, Part II

July 25, 2011 Leave a comment

Verses 1-7 are some of the most fascinating to me in the entire book of Acts.

How puzzling that new believers hadn’t heard of the Holy Spirit and experienced John’s baptism of repentance.

It is interesting to correlate Jesus’ words at the end of Matthew, the end of Luke and the beginning of Acts with Philip’s encounter with the Ethiopian believer.

Clearly water baptism is an important sign of Christian faith, but baptism in the Holy Spirit does not always correlate to baptism in Acts.  But in these verses, it is John’s baptism which is incomplete.
