  14. 14. ACTS 8 The Work of God in Samaria From the day of Stephen’s death a great persecution broke out against the church in Jerusalem. Everyone except the apostles were scattered throughout Judea and Samaria. Godly men came and buried Stephen and deeply mourned for him. But Saul began to try and destroy the church. Going from house to house, he dragged off both men and women and put them in prison. The ones who had been scattered because of the persecution shared the gospel wherever they went
  15. 15. ACTS 8 The Work of God in Samaria Philip went down to a city in Samaria and proclaimed the Messiah there. When the crowds heard what Philip said and saw the signs he performed, they all paid close attention to what he said because demonic spirits came out of many people with loud shrieks and others who were paralyzed or lame were healed. As a result there was great joy in that city.
  16. 16. ACTS 8 The Work of God in Samaria For some time a man named Simon had performed supernatural feats through sorcery and had amazed all of the people in Samaria. He bragged about being someone great and all the people both high and low took notice of him. They said things like, “This man is rightly called ‘The Great Power of God.’ ” They followed him because he had amazed them for a long time with his powers of sorcery.
  17. 17. ACTS 8 The Work of God in Samaria When they believed what Philip was saying as he proclaimed the gospel of the kingdom of God and the name of Jesus Christ they were baptized, both men and women. Simon followed Philip everywhere and was astonished at the signs and miracles Philip was doing.
  18. 18. ACTS 8 The Work of God in Samaria When the apostles in Jerusalem heard that Samaria had accepted the Word of God, they sent Peter and John to Samaria. When they arrived they prayed for the new believers to receive the Holy Spirit, because the Holy Spirit had not yet come upon any of them. They had only been baptized in the name of Jesus. When Peter and John placed their hands on them they received the Holy Spirit.
  19. 19. ACTS 8 The Work of God in Samaria When Simon saw that the Spirit was given through the laying on of the apostles’ hands he offered them money and said, “Will you give me this ability so that everyone I lay my hands upon will receive the Holy Spirit? ”
  20. 20. ACTS 8 The Work of God in Samaria Peter answered, “May your money perish with you if you think 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 so that he can forgive you for having thoughts like this in your heart. I see that you are full of bitterness and are captive to sin.” Simon answered, “Pray to the Lord so that nothing you have said will happen to me.”
