Philip in Samaria

Philip begins to witness in Samaria.
Saul began to destroy the church. Going from house to house, he dragged off both men and women and put them in pris¬¬¬on. – Slide 1
Those who had been scattered preached the word wherever they went. – Slide 2
Philip went down to a city in Samaria and proclaimed Christ there. – Slide 3
When the crowds heard Philip and saw the signs he performed, they all paid close attention to what he said. For with shrieks, impure spirits came out of many, and many who were paralysed or lame were healed.  So there was great joy in that city. – Slide 4
Now for some time a man named Simon had practiced sorcery in the city and amazed all the people of Samaria. He boasted that he was someone great, and all the people, both high and low, gave him their attention and exclaimed, ‘This man is rightly called the Great Power of God.’ They followed him because he had amazed them for a long time with his sorcery. – Slide 5
But when they believed Philip as he proclaimed the good news of the kingdom of God and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptised, both men and women. – Slide 6
Simon himself believed and was baptised. And he followed Philip everywhere, astonished by the great signs and miracles he saw. – Slide 7
When the apostles in Jerusalem heard that Samaria had accepted the word of God… – Slide 8
… they sent Peter and John to Samaria. – Slide 9
When they arrived, they prayed for the new believers there that they might receive the Holy Spirit, because the Holy Spirit had not yet come on any of them; they had simply been baptised in the name of the Lord Jesus. – Slide 10
Then Peter and John placed their hands on them, and they received the Holy Spirit. – Slide 11
When Simon saw that the Spirit was given at the laying on of the apostles’ hands, he offered them money and said, ‘Give me also this ability so that everyone on whom I lay my hands may receive the Holy Spirit.’ – Slide 12
Peter answered: ‘May your money perish with you, because you thought you could buy the gift of God with money! You have no part or share in this ministry, because your heart is not right before God. Repent of this wickedness and pray to the Lord in the hope that He may forgive you for having such a thought in your heart. For I see that you are full of bitterness and captive to sin.’ – Slide 13
Then Simon answered, ‘Pray to the Lord for me so that nothing you have said may happen to me.’ – Slide 14
After they had further proclaimed the word of the Lord and testified about Jesus … – Slide 15
… Peter and John returned to Jerusalem, preaching the gospel in many Samaritan villages. – Slide 16
