1. Philip Pi ’ilng the Gospel In
Samaria (vv. -!- ). Following the ston
ing of Stephe the enemies of the Lord
■were more aciive than ever In their
■effort* tn stamp out the new faith.
With Saul ns their leader they dragged
drum their lioi.o. : and imprisoned those
gwho confessed Christ, but the Devil
•overreached himself in this, for this
scattered the believers everywhere,
and they preached the Gospel as they
■went. The time !. „ow copie for the

Tusalem and Judea rs the Lord had
■commanded. The Lord permitted the
persecution so as to scatter them.
2. Peter and John Visit Samaria
(w. 1-1-17; 25). When the Apostles
heard of Philip s work In Samaria they
aent two of their best'men to encourage
It. These men had discernment to
Iknow that the spirit had not yet fallen
upon the believers, so they laid hands
upon them and the Spirit was given
them. These Samaritans were really
■converted, regenerated, hut had not yet
heen filled with the Spirit. In this they
were like many church members today
•without the Spirit’s gift.
3. Philip Preaching to the Ethiopian
lEunuch (Acts 8:30-40). In the con
version of the eunucli we see the Lord’s
work still broadening. The Gospel was
first preached to the Samaritans who
were natirHiaiiy on the borderland be
tween the Jews and.tlie Gentiles. This
Ethiopian was in nil probability a Gen
tile, a proselyte to the Jewish faith. In
ihls conversion we see the work reach
ing afar, even on Its way to the ends
of the earth, lly divine direction Philip
left his great work in Samaria and wa3
directed to th eunuch: The Spirit of
■God directed him to go and Join him
self to the chi rlpt of the Ethiopian.
'The coming together of these two men
In the desert was providential. (1) The
• eunuch's employment on the way. He
was reading the Word of God. (2) The
absolute need of a preacher. The
eunuch was reading th® fifty-third
•chapter of Isaiah, one of the clearest
'testimonies of the Messiah In the Old
'Testament, yet was unable to under-
.stand it. The one tiling needed in the
.salvation of men if fin’ the saved man

came upon tho rhurcli lor the definite
purpose of preaching the Gospel to the

Gospel could be preached to the whole

the condition of Gentile salvation had
to be settled, so a council was held at
Jerusalem in u’lileh these conditions
were Clearly settled. v
