People's Bible Notes for Acts 8:35


Ac 8:35 Then Philip . . . preached unto him Jesus. He showed the prophecies of the Messiah, that it behooved him to suffer, die, and rise again, and that he commanded his gospel to be preached and believers to be baptized in his name. That the eunuch calls for baptism (Ac 8:36) shows that in preaching Jesus, Philip preached the rite.

Discussion for Acts 8

  • Irene123
    The Bible itself proves one cannot be a 'lone' Christian. Acts 8:26-40 (God's spirit spoke to Philip). The eunuch admitted he needed someone to teach him. That's why God instituted the pastorate and disciples (saints), to be in that place, by prayer

    I am so glad to read of the need of preaching. In this day so many say they don't need to go to church, but the unuch said how can I unless someone guide me?

    Mark; It wasn't true, whatever you were taught that only the original living Apostles could be the vehicles for God giving His Holy Spirit. John the Baptist said, that Jesus was He who would baptize in the Holy Spirit and fire. Jesus Himself, when expounding to the Apostles about the purpose of God for "us" in this world till He returns; said how the Holy Spirit must be in us to fulfill that plan.

    To receive the Holy Ghost today you follow the plan of Jesus in Acts 2:38; the people gathered from all over the Roman Emp. in Jerusalem for the Day of Pentecost asked, after hearing Peter's message - Acts 2:37 .....
