April 14. 2016 (Acts 8:26-40)

“He invited Philip to get in and sit with him.”The Ethiopian official was a gentile who was attracted to Jewish scripture and the idea of one God. He would have been called a “God fearer.” They were on the edges of the Jewish faith. Philip accepts him where he is and baptizes him knowing only his hunger and desire to know and follow Jesus. (No RCIA for him!)
