    Preach it Brother!

    Haven't watched, so you might do this, but...

    My favorite "what if" in this story is what comes next...the Eunuch is reading Is 53.  Philip explains to him about the Messiah.  How far did they get? The text doesn't tell us, but I always picture the Eunuch sitting around a campfire later that evening reading a little farther down the scroll and getting to Is 56:1-7, which addresses both Eunuchs and Foreigners being welcomed into the temple, neither of which could enter most of the temple complex.  Eunuchs are no longer "cut off" and will have a name enduring through generations (without needing to have kids).  And all of this is related to the messianic texts and all the suffering servant stuff, too. 

    I always imagine it hitting the guy like a ton of bricks.  Philip is gone, but he's shown the Ethiopian more in a few moments than he probably realized.  It was a whole new way to read...not about promises far off but about promises that were being filled in his very life.  That's cool stuff.
    Intelligence is knowing that a tomato is a fruit; wisdom is knowing not to put it in a fruit salad.

    I like Oliva and Quesada (including Regius) a lot.  I will smoke anything, though.

    @Martel great comments, I haven't gotten that far yet, but close to it. I do plan on touching on what could have happened to the Eunuch after Phillip leaves. Good stuff.

    What is a bible devotional?
    I'm nit sure I understand what it is.
    Is it like a prayer group?

    It is a short or not so short depending on the subject lesson from the Bible to meditate on. Not a worship service, just a quick lesson.

    Something designed to increase devotion?

    Ah, I understand.
    Wasn't sure, so figured I'd ask. 
    Religion of any kind is intriguing to me and sometimes confusing.
    I try and understand what it is that is being said and the history of it.
