UFiliphu Ongcwele kungenzeka ukuthi wayengu-umdobikanjalo. Yize igama lakhe livela emaVangelini amathathu okuqala (uMathewu 10: 3, uMarko 3:18, uLuka 6:14, kanye neZenzo 1:13),IVangeli likaJohaneukuthi uFiliphu uba ngumuntu ophilayo.

Izazi azivumelani noFiliphu. UFiliphu kukhulunywa ngaye njengoomunye wabadikoni abayisikhombisa abagcotshiwekuzEnzo 6: 5. Abanye bathi lo nguFiliphu ohlukile.

Abanye bakuthatha lokhu njengoMphostoli. Uma kunguye lo Filiphu ofanayo, ubuntu bakhe buphila ngenxa yomkhankaso wakhe ophumelele eSamariya. Wahola umthenwa wase-Etopiya ekukholweni kuKristu (Izenzo 8:26). Wabuye wahlala noPaul eKesariya (Izenzo 21: 8) futhi wayengumuntu oqavile ebhizinisini lezithunywa zevangeli lokuqala.

"Ngilandele."

When Philip met Christ, he immediately sought out Nathanael and told him, “We have found him, of whom Moses… and the prophets did write.” Nathanael was sceptical.

Kodwa uFiliphu akazange aphikisane naye; esikhundleni salokho, uphendule nje,

“Woza uzobona.”

This story of Saint Philip reveals two important aspects, first, it demonstrates his correct approach to the sceptic as well as his simple faith in Christ. Second, it demonstrates his missionary instinct.
