(This is a wilderness road.) <strong>27 </strong>So he got up and went. Now there was an Ethiopian eunuch, a court official of the Candace, the queen of the Ethiopians, in charge of her entire treasury. He had come to Jerusalem to worship <strong>28 </strong>and was returning home; seated in his chariot, he was reading the prophet Isaiah. <strong>29 </strong>Then the Spirit said to Philip, "Go over to this chariot and join it." <strong>30 </strong>So Philip ran up to it and heard him reading the prophet Isaiah. He asked, "Do you understand what you are reading?" <strong>31 </strong>He replied, "How can I, unless someone guides me?" And he invited Philip to get in and sit beside him. <strong>32 </strong>Now the passage of the scripture that he was reading was this:</p><p>"Like a sheep he was led to the slaughter,<br>    and like a lamb silent before its shearer,<br>        so he does not open his mouth.<br><strong>33 </strong>In his humiliation justice was denied him.<br>    Who can describe his generation?<br>        For his life is taken away from the earth."</p><p><strong>34 </strong>The eunuch asked Philip, "About whom, may I ask you, does the prophet say this, about himself or about someone else?" <strong>35 </strong>Then Philip began to speak, and starting with this scripture he proclaimed to him the good news about Jesus. <strong>36 </strong>As they were going along the road, they came to some water, and the eunuch said, "Look, here is water! What is to prevent me from being baptized?" <strong>38 </strong>He commanded the chariot to stop, and both of them, Philip and the eunuch, went down into the water, and Philip baptized him.<br></p><p><br></p><p><em class="ms-rteFontSize-2">Photo by James R.
