Christian who brought the Gospel to Samaria
and the Ethiopian eunuch.
Christians shared possessions in common, but
the Hellenist wing of the church complained to
the Hebrew group that their widows were being
neglected in the daily distributions of food.
Philip was appointed along with Stephen
and other Hellenists (Greek-speakers) to oversee
the distribution. After Stephen was martyred,
Philip took the gospel to Samaria.
Later Philip was going toward Gaza, to the south,
and he rode in the chariot of an Ethiopian eunuch
who was a servant of the Ethiopian queen. The
eunuch believed Philip's testimony and Philip
baptized him. He later settled in Caesarea
with four daughters who could prophesy (Acts
