“The place of the scripture which he read was this, He was led as a sheep to the slaughter; and like a lamb dumb before his shearer, so opened he not his mouth:”
King James Version (KJV)
8:32 The portion of Scripture - By reading that very chapter, the fifty - third of Isaiah, many Jews, yea, and atheists, have been converted. Some of them history records. God knoweth them all. #Isaiah 53:7|
Ac 8:32 The place of the scripture . . . was this. See Isa 53:7,8. The whole chapter is a wonderful delineation of the sufferings of Christ. Philip found Christ in the text, and from it he "preached to him Jesus" (Ac 8:35). Led as a sheep. Unresisting. Opened he not his mouth. Made no defense.
