The secret words of Jesus
Boring Stuff 2:1-3

1 The words of Christ, which he spake unto his disciples, the twelve whom he had chosen, as he laid his hands upon them --

Jesus spoke to his twelve disiples and laid his hands on them.

2 And he called them by name, saying: Ye shall call on the Father in my name, in mighty prayer; and after ye have done this ye shall have power that to him upon whom ye shall lay your hands, ye shall give the Holy Ghost; and in my name shall ye give it, for thus do mine apostles.

He called them each by name and said,

You have the power to give the Holy Ghost.

3 Now Christ spake these words unto them at the time of his first appearing; and the multitude heard it not, but the disciples heard it; and on as many as they laid their hands, fell the Holy Ghost.

He said these words when he first appeared. [1]

Only the disiples heard it. [2]

And the Holy Ghost fell on whoever they laid their hands.
