Philip, native of Bethsaida

One of the Twelve Disciples of Jesus Christ

Philip was one of the twelve apostles. He was a native of Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter. When Philip was called by Jesus he readily responded to the call. Philip brought Nathanael to Christ. ( John 1:43-48).

Jesus went up into a mountain and sat with His disciples. The Passover was nigh. When Jesus lifted up His eyes and saw a great company come unto Him. Jesus asked Philip where they could buy bread for them to eat. Philip was tested by Jesus because Jesus already knew what He would do. Philip answered that Two hundred pennyworth of bread is not sufficient for them, that every one of them may take a little. It was Andrew who told Jesus about the lad who had five barley loaves and two small fishes. There were five thousand fed by Jesus. (John 6:5-12).

Philip introduced Greeks to Christ close to the time the Son of man was to be glorified. Certain Greeks came up to worship at the feast and came to Philip telling Philip they desired to see Jesus. Philip told Andrew and they both told Jesus. (John 12:20-24).

Jesus told His disciples of His betrayal and of His death. Jesus told the disciples not to let their hearts be troubled if they believed in God, to believe also in Him. If they knew Jesus they should know His Father also. Christ gently rebuked Philip when he asked Jesus to show the Father and it will satisfy them. Jesus asks Philip if he does not know Him since they have been together for a long time. Jesus told Philip that if Philip has seen Him then he has seen the Father. (John 14:1-12).

The disciples witnessed the Ascension of Jesus Christ and returned unto Jerusalem from the mount called Olivet. They went up into an upper room, where abode both Peter, and James, and John, and Andrew, Philip, and Thomas, Bartholomew, and Matthew, James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon Zelotes, and Judas the brother of James. ( Acts 1:13).
