Suddenly the Spirit calls Philip away to make contact with an Ethiopian official who is returning to his homeland after traveling to Jerusalem to worship. As Philip comes upon him, the eunuch is reading from the prophet Isaiah’s passage about the suffering servant of Israel. Philip is invited to join the eunuch in his chariot and explains the passage and much more. Coming to a wadi, a course of water in the desert, the eunuch requests baptism. Philip complies, then suddenly disappears while the eunuch goes on his way rejoicing.
