Acts 8:40

_ _ Philip was found — that is, “found himself,” “made his appearance”: an expression confirming the miraculous manner of his transportation.

_ _ at Azotus — the ancient Ashdod.

_ _ preached in all the cities — along the coast, proceeding northward.

_ _ till he came to Caesarea — fifty-five miles northwest of Jerusalem, on the Mediterranean, just south of Mount Carmel; and so named by Herod, who rebuilt it, in honor of Caesar Augustus. Henceforth we lose sight of zealous and honored Philip, as by and by we shall lose sight even of Peter. As the chariot of the Gospel rolls on, other agents are raised up, each suited to his work. But “he that soweth and he that reapeth shall rejoice together.” (See on John 4:31-38).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Acts 8:26-40.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Acts 8:40

But Philip was found at Azotus — Probably none saw him, from his leaving the eunuch, till he was there.
