Acts 8:17

Context
8:17 Then Peter and John placed their hands on the Samaritans, 1  and they received the Holy Spirit. 2 

1 tn Grk “on them”; the referent (the Samaritans) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

2 sn They received the Holy Spirit. It is likely this special distribution of the Spirit took place because a key ethnic boundary was being crossed. Here are some of “those far off” of Acts 2:38-40.
