Term 3 – Week 6

Big Idea –

The Holy Spirit helped Philip to tell the Ethiopian about Jesus, and helped the Ethiopian to understand the scriptures.

Acts 8 v26-40

Lesson Background

Today we are learning about Philip, who told an Ethiopian official, a very important man, about Jesus. This man was not a Jew or an Israelite, he knew about God, and had come to Jerusalem to worship God.

On his way home, in his chariot, he was reading the Bible, the book of Isaiah, but he couldn’t understand what it said.

The Holy Spirit told Philip, who was one of Jesus’ disciples, his special friends, “Go and tell this important official all about Jesus because he doesn’t understand what he is reading.”
