Bible Commentary for Acts 19:6

Wesley's Notes for Acts 19:6


19:4 John baptized - That is, the whole baptism and preaching of John pointed at Christ. After this John is mentioned no more in the New Testament. Here he gives way to Christ altogether.

19:5 And hearing this, they were baptized - By some other. Paul only laid his hands upon them. They were baptized - They were baptized twice; but not with the same baptism. John did not administer that baptism which Christ afterward commanded, that is, in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.


People's Bible Notes for Acts 19:6


Ac 19:6 When Paul had laid [his] hands upon them. It seemed proper that these men should enjoy, not only the ordinary influence of the Spirit, but that some spiritual gifts should be imparted, such as were given by the laying on of apostolic hands. Compare Ac 8:17 Ro 1:11. Spake in tongues. Of this ancient gift we learn (1) it edified only the speaker (1Co 14:4); (2) to benefit others an interpreter was needed (1Co 14:5-27); (3) God could understand (1Co 14:2). This gift disappeared at an early date from the church.
