We may see Herod's attempt on Jesus' life in his infancy as an earlier effort on Satan's part to get rid of the Son of God, but it really seems even more likely that the prince of darkness was not fully aware of Jesus until He was baptized in the Holy Spirit. Another reason for the delay was in order that Jesus could show us by His example what was supposed to happen to us. The Baptizer in the Holy Spirit was Himself baptized in the Holy Spirit. John the Baptist had been told by the Father that the One upon Whom he saw the Spirit descend and remain would be the One Who would baptize in the Holy Spirit (John 1:33).
The next one takes place in Samaria. The Samaritans were the remnant of the Israelite Northern Kingdom. They and the Jews, the people of the Southern Judaean Kingdom, were still at loggerheads. They hated one another heartily. In Acts 8, however, we read how Philip—not the Apostle, but one of the seven men appointed to help the apostles (Acts 6:1-6)—had gone to Samaria, and was telling the Samaritans about Jesus. It was an unlikely territory, but the Samaritans listened to Philip, although he was a Jew proclaiming a Jewish Messiah, because they saw him doing the works of power that Jesus had done, and they heard him speaking with authority, just as Jesus had spoken.
Their hands on them, and they received the Holy Ghost" (Acts 8:14-17 KJV). Notice that Peter and John expected that the Holy Ghost would already have "fallen upon" the Samaritan converts. As a matter of fact, this is the first time we are told of any laying on of hands to receive the Holy Spirit. We are not told of any laying on of hands for the 3000 converted on Pentecost, and of course the first 120 had no laying on of hands. Later in this same chapter, we don't read of Philip laying hands on the Ethiopian Eunuch (Acts 8:27-40).
