Question:

How did the Corinthian church receive the Holy Spirit in a miraculous way? Was it by the laying on hands by the apostles or what? Or does the Bible not say?

Answer:

The church in Corinth was started by the Apostle Paul (Acts 18). He initially taught there for 18 months (Acts 18:11) and returned several times. As an apostle, Paul had the ability to pass on the gifts of the Holy Spirit (II Timothy 1:6). Therefore, it is reasonable to conclude that Paul passed on the gifts to members of the church at Corinth while he was there.

Response:

Thank you, sir.
