How were Spiritual Gifts passed from the apostles to others believers?

The answer is found in Acts 8!

1. Simon the Sorcerer was baptized into Christ.
2. The gift of the Spirit was given to him when he was saved. (Acts 2:38)
3. He did not have any of the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
4. He understood that the only way to get the gifts of the Spirit was for the apostles to lay their hands on him.
5. He tried to buy the power. (Acts 8:18,19)

 

Philip the preacher could do miracles, but he could not give others the power to do miracles.

The apostles had to send Peter and John to Samaria to lay hands on some of the Samaritans...to give them power. These Samaritans could not pass on the gifts.

After the apostles died, there was no one left to pass on the gifts of the Spirit? This explains I Corinthians 13:8.
"Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away."
