Ethiopian Eunuch Coloring Pages

Philip the Evangelist was told by an angel to go to the road from Jerusalem to Gaza, and there he encountered the Ethiopian eunuch, the treasurer of the Candace, Queen of the Ethiopians (Ancient Greek: Κανδάκη, the “Candace” was the Meroitic language term for “queen” or possibly “royal woman”). The eunuch had been to Jerusalem to worship (Acts 8:27) and was returning home. Sitting in his chariot reading the Book of Isaiah, he was reading Isaiah 53:7-8. Philip asked the Ethiopian, “Do you understand what you are reading?” He said he did not (“How can I understand unless I have a teacher to teach me?”), and asked Philip to explain the text to him. Philip told him the Gospel of Jesus, and the Ethiopian asked to be baptized. They went down into some water and Philip baptized him.
