KNOW THE TRUTH - "Preaching Jesus!" July 1st, 2019

Excerpt - Philip was one of the first-fruits of the Gospel as it began in Jerusalem. As many of the disciples remained in Jerusalem to learn from the Apostles, we know that after several years, persecutions came to these early Christians. They were scattered everywhere preaching the Gospel. In Acts 8:26-39; we have an illustrative presentation of the preaching of the Gospel. Philip is divinely instructed to move himself southward from Samaria to the road between Jerusalem and Gaza (a deserted place). As Philip executes his instructions, he comes into contact with an Ethiopian of great authority who is returning from Jerusalem, where he had been to worship. What unfolds is a precedence setting case that needs to be observed in order to practice the accurate process of preaching Jesus today.

The instructor must first ascertain the level of understanding each individual has in order to best instruct that individual. Philip finds the Ethiopian reading from Isaiah (the Ethiopian was obviously a proselyte into Judaism); it is here that Philip will demonstrate the act of determining the knowledge level of this potential student.

Acts 8:30-31 So Philip ran to him, and heard him reading the prophet Isaiah, and said, “Do you understand what you are reading?”

31 And he said, “How can I, unless someone guides me?” And he asked Philip to come up and sit with him.”
