08 August 2021 (am) – Acts 8:26-40

PodcastAndy Bruins preaching from Acts on Sunday 8th August 2021.

Philip now moves on from Samaria, sent by an angel onto the desert road from Jerusalem to Gaza. Here he meets a Ethiopian governmental official, and through this encounter the good news about Jesus has an opportunity to travel to a distant country via a man who is radically converted.

Q Read v26-28. Why has this Ethiopian official made the long return trip to Jerusalem? What else do we know about him?

Q Look up Deuteronomy 23:1. Why would this man have found it difficult to worship at the Jerusalem temple?

Q Read v29-34. What is this man reading? What’s the problem he’s having?

Q What is the “good news about Jesus” (v35) that is specifically revealed by Isaiah in the verses quoted in v32-33?

Q Read v36-40. How does the Eunuch respond to the good news? And how does this episode both encourage and challenge us about sharing the gospel with others?
