Bible: Acts 8:9-13

8:9 Now in that city was a man named Simon, who had been practicing magic 1  and amazing the people of Samaria, claiming to be someone great. 8:10 All the people, 2  from the least to the greatest, paid close attention to him, saying, “This man is the power of God that is called ‘Great.’ 3  8:11 And they paid close attention to him because he had amazed them for a long time with his magic. 8:12 But when they believed Philip as he was proclaiming the good news about the kingdom of God 4  and the name of Jesus Christ, 5  they began to be baptized, 6  both men and women. 8:13 Even Simon himself believed, and after he was baptized, he stayed close to 7  Philip constantly, and when he saw the signs and great miracles that were occurring, he was amazed. 8
