Sound words regarding the Book of Acts
from Sandra Hooper
I am reading through the book of Acts and noticed how when Phillip was teaching the Ethiopian eunuch about a certain passage, Phillip also was teaching him about Jesus and also must have talked about baptism because the eunuch asked about being baptized. Philip said to the eunuch that if he believed with all his heart he could. Look at the confession of the eunuch, which is the same as Peter’s.
“I believe that JESUS CHRIST IS THE SON OF GOD. (Acts 8:37)
A little further we read about Saul’s conversion. It says,
So Ananias departed and entered the house, and after laying his hands on him said, “Brother Saul, the Lord Jesus, who appeared to you on the road by which you were coming, has sent me so that you may regain your sight and be filled with the Holy Spirit.” And immediately there fell from his eyes something like scales, and he regained his sight, and he got up and was baptized, and he took food and was strengthened. (Acts 9:17-19)
And what happened after that is that Saul begins to preach Christ. He was with the disciples several days at Damascus and immediately began to proclaim Jesus in the synagogues. Did he start preaching that "Jesus is GOD?" No. He began to proclaim that “ JESUS IS THE SON OF GOD.” (Acts 9:20)
The disciples nor Saul (now Paul) was confused about who God is and who Christ is.
