Ask Phillip - Given the Holy Spirit Twice?

Did the disciples receive the Holy Spirit twice? Confusion and disagreement has arisen between Christians over the interpretation of the disciples receiving the Holy Spirit in Luke, John and Acts. Phillip Jensen says that it is dangerous to leap from one Bible book to another and that false conclusions can be drawn in doing so. He says that what we can be sure of is that, the disciples received the Spirit in order to preach the gospel of repentance and forgiveness, but the details of how it happened we can be less sure about.
