Jesus Tested Philip

“Then Jesus lifted up His eyes, and seeing a great multitude coming toward Him, He said to Philip, ‘Where shall we buy bread, that these may eat?’But this He said to test him, for He Himself knew what He would do.”                   John 6:5-6

John 14

Vs. 9, “Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you so long, and yet you have not known Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father; so how can you say, ‘Show us the Father’?”

Vs. 11, “Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father in Me, or else believe Me for the sake of the works themselves.”

Will Jesus test us too?

Acts 8

Vs. 26, “Now an angel of the Lord spoke to Philip, saying, “Arise and go toward the south along the road which goes down from Jerusalem to Gaza.” This is desert.”

Vs. 35, “Then Philip opened his mouth, and beginning at this Scripture, preached Jesus to him.”

“Oh, let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end, But establish the just; For the righteous God tests the hearts and minds.”   Psalm 7:9
