Acts 19.1-17, The disciples were baptised, drama — Ana Gobledale, UK

Scripture     Acts 19:1-7  adapted from the New Revised Standard Version

Readers:  Storyteller, Paul and 1 or 2 Disciples

Storyteller:  While Apollos was in Corinth, Paul passed through the interior regions and came to Ephesus, where he found some disciples. Paul had this conversation with the disciples:

Paul:  Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you became believers?

Disciple:  No, we have not even heard that there is a Holy Spirit.”

Paul:  Into what then were you baptised?

Disciple:  Into John’s baptism.

Paul:  John baptised with the baptism of repentance, telling the people to believe in the one who was to come after him, that is, in Jesus.

Storyteller:  On hearing this, the disciples were baptised in the name of the Beloved One, Jesus.  When Paul had laid his hands on them, the Holy Spirit came upon them, and they spoke in tongues and prophesied.  Altogether there were about twelve of them.
