Essay Concerning the New Testament

I believe in what you stated as well. I think you are dead on about that. But here is the thing ; the believers at the church of Rome did not need the apostle Paul for this. In this context, pertaining to the "Gift of the Spirit" there is something else. I believe the context shows something else here. But we today as well as the church of Rome (back ) then can be renewed by the Holy Spirit w/o presence of an apostle.

So, maybe Paul is referring to fuller measure of the Holy Spirit or the miraculous measure much like in Acts 19:1-9 or Acts 8:14-15,16.

In Acts 19 remember Paul asking the disciples, "Did you receive the Holy Spirit when/ since you believed? "
