The Gospel talks little about Philip. The Apostle’s name – Philippos has Greek origin, meaning fond of horses. Before meeting Christ, he most likely was one of the disciples of John the Baptist, like John and Andrew. He was also obsessed with expectation of the Messiah, and just as most of his contemporaries, did not even suspect that He, whom he was longing to see, was already there, next to him.
