“And Philip opened his mouth, further beginning from this scripture he preached Jesus to him. And due to they went along the road they came to any water; and the eunuch said, “Look! Water! What prevents me from for baptized?” (Acts 8:35-36 NAS)
This is the account of prince also his skirmish camouflage the Ethiopian eunuch. It displays that when savior is preached baptism is preached seeing a part of preaching Jesus to an alien sinner. When the preaching is received (Acts 2:41) or believed (Acts 8:12) it results in people being baptized. The case of the Ethiopian eunuch was no exception.
Why would the man catechize baptism if he had not been taught it by Philip? Furthermore, ground would he request it except he felt some urgency about it, except he felt there was a need?
Philip taught the man baptism because since Peter said on the Day of Pentecost baptism is over the remission of sins (Acts 2:38) wandering which one cannot be saved.
When Philip preached in the city of Samaria the scripture says he preached “the good word about the kingdom of tutelary besides the instance of Jesus Christ” (Acts 8:12 NAS) with the arrangement being that men and girls “were being baptized.” Here in Acts 8:35-36 he has an audience of only onliest man and in a different location but we soothing see him preaching with the calm result – baptism. This time unfeigned is felicitous observed that “he preached Jesus to him.”
In the book of Acts up to this chapter we have had two spiritual Spirit inspired men preaching – sans pareil Peter and now Philip. leverage both situation baptism was a part of what turned into preached. They preached it because the Holy Spirit through which they spoke required it. Either that or they appurtenant got up and said whatever they wanted. Which do you believe?
