This week, we began our study of a very familiar story about Philip the Evangelist and an official from Ethiopia (modern-day Sudan). We discussed God’s amazing timing in bringing these two men together at the perfect moment. We examined a variety of passages to determine whether the terms “angel” and “spirit” were interchangeable in this story.
We also looked at the long pilgrimage this man made from Nubia to Jerusalem and back again. We examined the topography of the road from Jerusalem to Gaza, and also discussed the alternate translation of “south” as “noon.”
