    8:12 But when they believed Philip preaching the things concerning the kingdom of God, and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women.


    Philip preached to Samaria. He was preaching the name of Jesus and the coming prophetic Kingdom. The Kingdom was the fulfillment of prophecy; the reign of Christ on earth along with David and the twelve Apostles; the filling of the Spirit to obey the law of God and become a light of salvation to the Gentiles.

    8:27 And he arose and went: and, behold, a man of Ethiopia, an eunuch of great authority under Candace queen of the Ethiopians, who had the charge of all her treasure, and had come to Jerusalem for to worship,

    8:28 Was returning, and sitting in his chariot read Esaias the prophet.

    Above, the angel of the Lord directed Philip to go to Gaza, where, he met the Ethiopian reading Isaiah.

    8:35 Then Philip opened his mouth, and began at the same scripture, and preached unto him Jesus.

    Philip preached Jesus.

    8:36 And as they went on their way, they came unto a certain water: and the eunuch said, See, here is water; what doth hinder me to be baptized?

    8:37 And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.

    The Ethiopian believed that Jesus was the Son of God and according to the Israel program was baptized thereafter.

    9:19 And when he had received meat, he was strengthened. Then was Saul certain days with the disciples which were at Damascus.

    9:20 And straightway he preached Christ in the synagogues, that he is the Son of God.

    9:21 But all that heard him were amazed, and said; Is not this he that destroyed them which called on this name in Jerusalem, and came hither for that intent, that he might bring them bound unto the chief priests?

    9:22 But Saul increased the more in strength, and confounded the Jews which dwelt at Damascus, proving that this is very Christ.

    Paul met the Lord Jesus on the road to Damascus and believed on Him. First thing he went to the Jews in the synagogues and preaches Jesus was the Christ, the Son of God.
