John 1:44, 45 --- Philip found Nathanael, and said to him, "We have found him, of whom Moses in the law, and also of the prophets write, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph."
Philip's dominant spiritual attribute is POWER.
Because he knew the Greek language so well, Philip was called "the Greek," but he was "of Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter," and he lived in Galilee as they did.
Philip, a powerful and vital man, was among the first to join the little band of men as a chosen Disciple of Jesus. He, it was, who brought Nathanael, or Bartholomew, to Jesus.
Philip, using the power of the Word, as he and the other Disciples were empowered to do in His name, healed the sick and cast out "unclean spirits." His difficulty in understanding the spiritual meaning of Jesus' message at times, did not seem to hinder his wonderful power to cure the lame and the paralyzed in this way.
According to traditional legend, Philip and Bartholomew traveled together after Pentecost, and Philip is said to have gone on as far as Phrygia.
"From the book Jesus and the Twelve, The Geographical Publishing Company, Inc. Chicago, Illinois, 1967"
Philip preached the Gospel in Phrygia (west central Turkey) before dying or being martyred there at Hieropolis.
The apostle should be distinguished from Philip the "deacon" or Evangelist, who preached to the people of Samaria and baptised the Ethiopian eunuch, Acts 8:4-8,26-39.
