Summary:
Up to now the teaching on the Baptism in the Holy Spirit has been based on a few scriptural texts whose interpretation was disputed. Now new evidence found in the post-Biblical authors demonstrates that what is called Baptism in the Holy Spirit was integral to Christian initiation. This means that Baptism in the Spirit does not belong to private piety but to public official liturgy and is normative.
