Take a Look in the Book

Picture the scene in Acts 8:26-40. An Ethiopian eunuch is riding in his chariot reading scripture. Philip notices this, chases him down, climbs into the chariot, and interprets scripture for the eunuch. In this way, the Gospel reached Ethiopia (at least as the story goes). There is a great cinematic character to this scene, but it also stresses the importance of scripture. Sometimes, it is not just handing someone a Bible that matters but knowing enough to help people understand it. In the somewhat altered words of Reading Rainbow, take a look in the book.
