  1. What does the men "full of (the)Spirit mean,"full of the Holy Spirit?

  2. Can the men full of "the Spirit" (=the Holy Spirit) as rendered in all Eng. Translations,lack anything?

(In all English Versions, πλήρεις πνεύματος, translated as "full of the Spirit"-is interpolation by the translators – refers to the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is the very source of all the powers and wisdom.)

  1. Should translate πλήρεις πνεύματος as "full of spirit" which the Holy Spirit, the Giver "fills with" the believers? – e.g.,Bezalel & Oholiab -Ex. 28:3;36:1;35:34; Saul, 1 Sam 10:10; 120 people in the upper Room, Acts2:4;Peter and Stephen (Acts 4:8, 7:55);Paul (Acts 13:9).

Text (ESV):

Acts 6:3 – "Therefore, brothers, pick out from among you seven men of good repute, full of the Spirit (πλήρεις πνεύματος) and of wisdom, whom we will appoint to this duty.
