Acts 8:30-38,

[This tells the story of how Philip meets up with a eunuch of great authority under Candace the queen of the Ethiopians, who was reading the prophet Isaiah]:

So Philip ran to him, and heard him reading the prophet Isaiah, and said, "Do you understand what you are reading?"

And he said, "How can I, unless someone guides me?" And he asked Philip to come up and sit with him. The place in the Scripture which he read was this:

"He was led as a sheep to the slaughter;
And as a lamb before its shearer is silent,
So He opened not His mouth.
In His humiliation His justice was taken away,
And who will declare His generation?
For His life is taken from the earth."
So the eunuch answered Philip and said, "I ask you, of whom
does the prophet say this, of himself or of some other man?"

"Then Philip opened his mouth, and beginning at this scripture, preached Jesus to him."

Now as they went down the road, they came to some water. And the eunuch said, "See, here is water. What hinders me from being baptized?"

Then Philip said, "If you believe with all your heart, you may."

And he answered and said, "I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God." So he commanded the chariot to stand still. And both Philip and the eunuch went down into the water, and he baptized him."



Greetings Bible Enthusiast!

Last week we began to explore whether one needs to be baptized in order to be saved. One thing is certain! Often, in the New Testament, as soon as someone confesses the Lord Jesus, they immediately get baptized, as we see in the above scripture. Tomorrow we will look at Mark 16 to shed even more light on the subject. Maybe you can take a peek in advance!

God Bless You!
