Main Article Content

Joy A Jones


This paper begins with an ideological analysis of Acts 8:26-40, which serves as the foundation for exploring the partial fulfillment of the Great Commission. Acts 8:26-40 provides an account of the evangelist Philip witnessing to an Ethiopian eunuch. Although some Biblical scholars focus on the significance of the Ethiopian’s race and nationality, this paper suggests the story’s significance is not merely the eunuch’s ethnography but the demonstration of the importance of inclusion in leadership. This paper provides a deeper understanding of Acts 8:26-40 and illustrates the value of ideological analysis in understanding leadership.
