I find it interesting that when Peter encountered the risen Christ, Jesus asked him the same question three times. How many times did Peter deny the Lord? Three. And three times Jesus asked him, “Simon, son of Jonah, do you love Me . . . ?” (John 21:15–17).
While we don’t know a lot about the Apostle Philip, we do know he was personally reached by Jesus himself. The Gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke give us no details about him. All the vignettes of Philip appear in the Gospel of John.
