This story happens because the Christians were being pushed out of Jerusalem by persecution, following the martyrdom of Stephen. These were not easy times to be a Christian. Just as, for different reasons, we also live in times when it is not easy to be a Christian.



Acts 8

Key Words



Often (though not always) literally a castrated man. The rich African kingdoms south of Egypt (referred to here, rather than modern day Ethiopia) often used eunuchs in high positions of authority. Such a one, even a God-fearing man such as this one, would have been excluded from becoming a full convert to Judaism. But the Christian faith knows of no such exclusion, and this man became the first Gentile convert.


The Challenge


How about applying this simple idea about ‘tic tac toe’ to your classmates at school?

Do not exclude anyone!
