The Ethiopian asked Philip, “Please, can you tell me who the prophet is speaking of? Is it himself or another man?”
Philip started with this passage and shared with him the wonderful message of Jesus.
As they were traveling down the road, the man said, “Look, here’s a pool of water. Why don’t I get baptized right now?”
Philip replied, “If you believe with all your heart, I’ll baptize you.”
The man answered, “I believe that Jesus is the Anointed One, the Son of God.”
The Ethiopian stopped his chariot, and they went down into the water and Philip baptized him. When they came up out of the water, Philip was suddenly snatched up by the Spirit of the Lord and instantly carried away to the city of Ashdod, where he reappeared, preaching the gospel in that city.
The man never saw Philip again. He returned to Ethiopia full of great joy. Philip, however, traveled on to all of the towns of that region, bringing them the good news, until he arrived at Caesarea.
