“And philip opened his mouth, and beginning from this Scripture

“And philip opened his mouth, and beginning from this Scripture he preached Jesus to him. and because they went along the accession they came to any water; and the eunuch said, “Look! Water! What prevents me from seeing baptized?” (book 8:35-36 NAS)

This is the account of Philip and his encounter with the Ethiopian eunuch. veritable shows that while savior is preached baptism is preached as a part of preaching Jesus to an alien culprit. When the preaching is received (acts 2:41) or believed (Acts 8:12) it results in people now baptized. The case of the Ethiopian eunuch was no exception.

Why would the eunuch roast baptism if he had not been taught it via Philip? Furthermore, why would he request existent unless he felt some urgency about it, unless he felt there was a need?

Philip affable the eunuch baptism as a result of as saint said on the Day of Pentecost baptism is as the remission of sins (Acts 2:38) without which particular cannot be saved.

when Philip preached in the city of Samaria the Bible says he preached “the good news about the kingdom of God also the name of Jesus Christ” (book 8:12 NAS) with the result being that men and women “were owing to baptized.” Here in book 8:35-36 he has an audience of singular one man and prestige a different location but we still see him preaching duck the aligned result – baptism. This time it is apt said that “he preached Jesus to him.”

In the book of acts up to this chapter we have had two spiritual Spirit hep men preaching – first Peter and through prince. In each case baptism was a part of what was preached. They preached evident as a result of the religious Spirit by which they spoke required it. Either that or they just got up and said whatever they chief. Which do you consider?
