“But Philip was found at Azotus: and passing through he preached in all the cities, till he came to Caesarea.”
King James Version (KJV)
8:40 But Philip was found at Azotus - Probably none saw him, from his leaving the eunuch, till he was there.
Ac 8:40 But Philip was found at Azotus. The old Philistine city of Ashdod, near the seacoast, between Gaza and Joppa. It is now a ruin. Here he preached in all the seacoast cities, probably founding churches. See Ac 9:32,36. Till he came to Caesarea, the seaport northwest of Jerusalem, the Roman capital of Judea. We are not told how soon he reached Caesarea. It may have been months or years. At any rate, it is likely that it did not take place until after Peter's missionary work there. Many years later we find Philip living in this city (Ac 21:8).
