A friend or foster-brother (2Ma 9:29) of Antiochus Epiphanes, who received the charge (previously given to Lysias) of bringing up the young Antiochus Eupator (1Ma 6:14). On the death of Antiochus Epiphanes, Lysias took upon himself to proclaim young Eupator king (b.c. 164). The jealousy over this matter led to open hostilitles between Lysias and Philip. Philip was overcome by Lysias at Antioch and put to death. He is by many regarded as identical with

These things were done in Bethabara beyond Jordan, where John was baptising. The next day John seeth Jesus coming to him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, who taketh away the sin of the world, read more. This is he of whom I spake, After me cometh a man who was before me: for before me he existed. And I knew him not: though that he might be manifested to Israel, therefore am I come baptising with water. And John bore witness, saying, I saw the Spirit descending as a dove from heaven, and it rested upon him. And I did not know him: but he that sent me baptising with water, he said to me, Upon whomsoever thou shalt see the Spirit descending as a dove, and resting upon him, that is he who baptiseth with the Holy Ghost. And I have seen it, and have borne testimony that this is the Son of God. On the morrow John was again standing with two of his disciples; and looking upon Jesus as he walked by, he saith, Behold the Lamb of God! And the two disciples heard him speak, and they followed Jesus. Then Jesus turned about, and seeing them following, saith to them, What are ye seeking? They said unto him, Rabbi (which signifies, when translated, Master), where is thy abode? He saith unto them, Come and see. They came and saw where he abode, and continued with him that day: and it was about the tenth hour. One of the two, who had heard from John mention of Jesus, and had followed him, was Andrew, Simon Peter's brother.
One of the two, who had heard from John mention of Jesus, and had followed him, was Andrew, Simon Peter's brother. He first finds his own brother Simon, and saith to him, We have found the Messiah (which is, being translated, the Christ).
He first finds his own brother Simon, and saith to him, We have found the Messiah (which is, being translated, the Christ). And he brought him to Jesus. Then Jesus looking on him, said, Thou art Simon the son of Jonas: thou shalt be called Cephas, which, interpreted [in Greek], is Petros, a Rock.
And he brought him to Jesus. Then Jesus looking on him, said, Thou art Simon the son of Jonas: thou shalt be called Cephas, which, interpreted [in Greek], is Petros, a Rock. The next day Jesus resolved to go into Galilee, and he findeth Philip, and saith to him, Follow me. read more. Now Philip was of Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter.
Now Philip was of Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter. Philip findeth Nathaniel, and saith to him, We have found him whom Moses in the law has described, and the prophets, Jesus the son of Joseph, who is of Nazareth.
Philip findeth Nathaniel, and saith to him, We have found him whom Moses in the law has described, and the prophets, Jesus the son of Joseph, who is of Nazareth. And Nathaniel said to him, Can any thing good come out of Nazareth? Philip saith to him, Come and see.
And Nathaniel said to him, Can any thing good come out of Nazareth? Philip saith to him, Come and see. Jesus saw Nathaniel coming to him, and saith of him, Behold an Israelite in reality, in whom there is no guile! read more. Nathaniel saith unto him, From whence canst thou know me? Jesus answered and said unto him, Before Philip called thee, when thou wast under the fig-tree, I saw thee. Nathaniel answered and said to him, Rabbi, thou art the Son of God; thou art the king of Israel. Jesus answered and said unto him, Because I said to thee, I saw thee under the fig-tree, dost thou believe? thou shalt see greater things than these. And he saith to him, Verily, verily, I tell you, From henceforth ye shall see heaven opened, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man.
Then Jesus lifting up his eyes, and seeing that a vast concourse of people was come to him, said to Philip, Whence shall we buy loaves, that these may eat?
One of his disciples saith to him, (Andrew, Simon Peter's brother,)
these then came to Philip, who was of Bethsaida, of Galilee, and they asked him, saying, Sir, we wish to see Jesus. Philip comes and speaks to Andrew: and again Andrew and Philip tell Jesus.
These things said Isaiah, when he saw his glory, and spake of him.
for they loved honour from men, more than honour from God.
Philip saith to him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us. Jesus saith to him, Am I all this while with you, and hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou, Shew us the Father?
NOW in those days, when the disciples were multiplied, there arose a murmuring of the Grecian proselytes against the Hebrews, because their widows were overlooked in the daily distribution. Then the twelve assembling the multitude of the disciples, said, It is not fit that we should leave the word of God, to make distribution to the tables. read more. Therefore, brethren, do ye look out for seven men from among yourselves, the best approved, full of the Holy Ghost and wisdom, whom we may appoint to superintend this business. But we will devote ourselves constantly to prayer, and to the ministry of the word. And this saying was very agreeable to all the multitude: and they elected Stephen, a man full of faith and of the Holy Ghost, and Philip, and Prochorus, and Nicanor, and Timon, and Parmenas, and Nicholas a proselyte a man of Antioch: whom they presented before the apostles: and having prayed, they laid their hands upon them.
Those therefore who were dispersed, travelled through the country, preaching the word. But Philip, going down to a city of Samaria, preached Christ unto them. read more. And the multitudes with united minds were very attentive to the things spoken by Philip, when they heard him, and saw the miracles which he did. For the unclean spirits, roaring with great cries, came forth out of many who were possessed: and many who were paralytic and lame were healed. And there was great joy in that city.
Now the angel of the Lord spake to Philip, saying, Arise, and go towards the south, on the road which leads down from Jerusalem to Gaza: it is a wilderness. And he arose and went: and lo! an Ethiopian man, an eunuch, a person in power under Candace queen of the Ethiopians, who was over all her treasury; he had gone to worship unto Jerusalem, read more. and was returning, and sitting in his chariot, was reading the prophet Isaiah. Then said the Spirit to Philip, Go up, and approach close to that chariot. Then Philip running up to him, heard him reading the prophet Isaiah; and he said, Well! but dost thou understand what thou art reading? He replied, How indeed can I, except some person guide me in the way? And he besought Philip to come up and sit with him. The portion of scripture which he had been reading was this: "He was led as a sheep to the slaughter; and as a lamb before him who sheareth it is dumb, so he opened not his mouth: in his humiliation his judgment was taken away: but his generation who can describe? for his life was taken away from the earth." Then the eunuch addressing himself to Philip, said, I pray thee, of whom doth the prophet thus speak? of himself, or of some other person? Then Philip opening his mouth, and beginning from that scripture, preached to him Jesus. But as they went on the road, they came to some water: and the eunuch said, Here is water, what forbids my being baptised? And Philip said, If thou believest with the whole heart, it is allowable. Then he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. And he bid the carriage stop: and they went down both into the water, both Philip and the eunuch; and he baptised him. But when they were come up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord caught up Philip, and the eunuch saw him no more: then he went on his way rejoicing. But Philip found himself at Azotus: and passing through he preached the gospel in all the cities, until he came to Caesarea.
And on the morrow we who were Paul's companions departed with him, and went to Caesarea; and entering into the house of Philip the evangelist (who was one of the seven deacons), we abode with him. Now this man had four maiden daughters endued with the gift of prophecy.
