PREPARATION

From the August 1923 issue of The Christian Science Journal


The story of Philip and the eunuch in The Acts of the Apostles is a very unusual one, justifying careful consideration. We find there an account of Philip's guidance and obedience, and the beautiful result; we find the eunuch's earnest desire to learn, and the gratification of that desire; we find, if we read carefully; the true signification of baptism, the explanation of salvation, and we come happily to the conclusion that the eunuch "went on his way rejoicing.
