These things occurred in Bethany beyond the Jordan, where John was baptizing. On the next day he saw Jesus coming to him, and said, Behold the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world. read more. This is he of whom I said, After me comes a man who was before me, for he was before me. And I knew him not; but that he might be made manifest to Israel, for this reason have I come baptizing with water. And John testified saying, I saw the Spirit descend like a dove from heaven, and it remained on him. And I knew him not, but he that sent me to baptize with water, he said to me, On whom you see the Spirit descend and remain on him, this is he that baptizes with the Holy Spirit. And I have seen and testified that this is the Son of God. On the next day John was again standing, and two of his disciples, and looking at Jesus as he walked, he said, Behold the Lamb of God. And his two disciples heard him say this, and followed Jesus. And Jesus turning around, and seeing them following, said to them, What do you seek? And they said to him, Rabbi, which interpreted signifies Teacher, where do you stay? He said to them, Come and see. Then they went and saw where he staid, and staid with him that day; it was about the tenth hour. Andrew, the brother of Simon Peter, was one of the two who heard from John, and followed him;

he first found his brother Simon, and said to him, We have found the Messiah; which is interpreted, Christ [Anointed]. He brought him to Jesus. Jesus looking at him said, You are Simon, the son of Jonas; you shall be called Cephas; which is interpreted, Peter [Rock].
He brought him to Jesus. Jesus looking at him said, You are Simon, the son of Jonas; you shall be called Cephas; which is interpreted, Peter [Rock]. On the next day he wished to go to Galilee, and he found Philip. And Jesus said to him, Follow me. read more. Now Philip was from Bethsaida, of the city of Andrew and Peter.
Now Philip was from Bethsaida, of the city of Andrew and Peter. Philip found Nathanael, and said to him, We have found him of whom Moses in the law, and the prophets, wrote, Jesus, the son of Joseph, from Nazareth.
Philip found Nathanael, and said to him, We have found him of whom Moses in the law, and the prophets, wrote, Jesus, the son of Joseph, from Nazareth. And Nathanael said to him, Can any good thing come out of Nazareth? Philip said to him, Come and see.
And Nathanael said to him, Can any good thing come out of Nazareth? Philip said to him, Come and see. Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him, and said of him, See an Israelite indeed, in whom is no guile. read more. Nathanael said to him, Whence do you know me? Jesus answered and said to him, Before Philip called you, when you were under the fig tree I saw you. Nathanael answered him, Rabbi, you are the Son of God; you are the King of Israel. Jesus answered and said to him, Because I said to you I saw you under the fig tree, do you believe? You shall see greater things than these. And he said to him, I tell you most truly, you shall see heaven opened and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man.
Then Jesus lining up his eyes, and seeing many people come to him, said to Philip, Whence shall we buy bread that these may eat?
One of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, said to him,
these, therefore, came to Philip, who was from Bethsaida of Galilee, and asked him, saying, Sir, we wish to see Jesus. Philip went and told Andrew, and again Andrew and Philip went and told Jesus.
Isaiah said these things because he saw his glory, and spoke of him.
for they loved the glory of men more than the glory of God.
Philip said to him, Lord, show us the Father, and we shall be satisfied. Jesus said to him, Have I been so long a time with you and have you not known me, Philip? He that has seen me has seen the Father; and how say you, Show us the Father?
AND in those days the disciples being multiplied, there was a complaint of the Hellenists against the Hebrews, that their widows were neglected in the daily service. And the twelve calling the multitude of the disciples, said, It is not desirable that we should leave the word of God to serve tables. read more. Look out therefore, brothers, from among you seven men of good repute, full of the Holy Spirit, and of wisdom, whom we may set over this business; but we will attend continually to prayer, and the ministry of the word. And the proposition pleased all the multitude, and they elected Stephen, a man full of faith and of the Holy Spirit, and Philip and Prochorus, and Nicanor and Timon, and Parmenas, and Nicolaus a proselyte of Antioch, and set them before the Apostles; and they having prayed imposed hands on them.
Being scattered abroad, therefore, they went everywhere preaching the good news of the word; and Philip going down to a city of Samaria preached Christ to them. read more. And the multitudes attended with one accord to the things said by Philip, when they heard him and saw the miracles which he performed. For impure spirits came out of many who had them, crying with a loud voice; and many paralytics and lame persons were cured; and there was great joy in that city.
And an angel of the Lord spoke to Philip, saying, Arise and go to the south, by the way that leads from Jerusalem to Gaza; this is a wilderness. And he arose and went. And behold a man, an Ethiopian eunuch, an officer of Candace queen of the Ethiopians, who was over all her treasures, who had come to Jerusalem to worship, read more. and he was returning and sitting in his chariot reading the prophet Isaiah. And the Spirit said to Philip, Go forward and join yourself to his chariot. And Philip running forward heard him reading the prophet Isaiah, and he said, Do you really understand what you read? And he said [No]; for how can I unless some one teaches me? And he invited Philip to come up and sit with him. And the passage of Scripture which he was reading, was this; As a sheep is led to slaughter, and as a lamb before one that shears him is dumb, so he opened not his mouth. In his humiliation his judgment was taken away; and who will tell of his generation? for his life was taken from the earth. And the eunuch answered and said to Philip, Of whom I pray you does the prophet say this? of himself or of some other one? And Philip opening his mouth, and beginning from this Scripture, preached to him the good news of Jesus. And as they went on the way they came to a certain water, and the eunuch said, Behold water; what hinders me from being baptized? (Added verse not retained in Sawyer) And he commanded the chariot to stop, and they both went down to the water, both Philip and the eunuch, and he baptized him. And when they went up from the water the Spirit of the Lord caught away Philip, and the eunuch saw him no more; for he went his way rejoicing. But Philip was found at Azotus, and passing through he preached the good news to all the cities till he came to Caesarea.
And departing on the next day we came to Caesarea, and going to the house of Philip the evangelist, who was one of the seven, we staid with him. This man had four virgin daughters who prophesied.
