The fifth case example , found in Acts , describes Christians in Ephesus. Paul in Acts identified the Ephesians as already believers. Priscilla, Aquila, Apollos Acts Likewise, the Bible clearly states Acts that when Paul laid his hands on them, they spoke in other tongues. Last, let us consider a possible sixth case example found in Acts All the ancient manuscripts of the New Testament are divided into five families. One of the family of manuscripts states that when the eunuch came up out of the water, he was speaking in other tongues and prophesying.
Like Cornelius, the eunuch was a God-fearer, which is the reason he initially had gone to Jerusalem. Like Cornelius, he most likely already had a faith in the promised messiah or the seed, which had already been planted, fully opened up with the preaching of Philip.
