Verses 1-7 are some of the most fascinating to me in the entire book of Acts.
How puzzling that new believers hadn’t heard of the Holy Spirit and experienced John’s baptism of repentance.
Clearly water baptism is an important sign of Christian faith, but baptism in the Holy Spirit does not always correlate to baptism in Acts. But in these verses, it is John’s baptism which is incomplete.
In verses 26-40, we read about Philip and the Ethiopian eunuch’s miraculous encounter.
Philip explains the message of the Bible.
The eunuch passes by water and asks to be baptized on the spot.
Philip raises no objections. After the baptism, he is miraculously transported to another town, never to be seen by the eunuch again.
