- Philip the Evangelist
Philip the Evangelist appears several times in the
Acts of the Apostles. He was one of the Seven Deaconschosen to care for the poor of the Christiancommunity in Jerusalem(), though the account may refer to Philip the Apostle.
He is first mentioned in the Acts of the Apostles (; 2 Timothy bibleverse-nb|2|Timothy|4:5|KJV), he entertained Paul and his companion on their way to Jerusalem; at that time "he had four daughters which did prophesy". At a very early period he came to be confounded with the apostle Philip (see above); the confusion was all the more easy because, as an esteemed member of the apostolic company, he may readily have been described as an apostle in the wider sense of that word. [see further
George Salmon, "Introduction to the New Testament", 7th ed., p. 313 sqq.] A late tradition describes him as settling at Trallesin Asia Minor, where he became the bishopof that church.
"Philip the deacon" is commemorated on
June 6in the Roman Catholic Church, and on October 11in the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod. In the Eastern Orthodox Church, Philip is counted among the Seventy Apostles, and is referred to as a Protodeacon; his feast day is celebrated on January 4.
