The following essay starts off with a brief survey of the OT backdrop of being filled with the Spirit. It is next devoted to a detailed study of all the references to a "filling” with the Holy Spirit or a person being “full of the Spirit” in the NT. The hope is that such an analysis will provide a clear biblical answer to the question, “What does it mean to be 'filled' with the Spirit?" Some detail attention is given to Ephesians 5:18 and the passages in the book of Acts.
