Acts 8:9-13

9Now a certain man named Simon had previously practiced magic in the city and amazed the people of Samaria, saying that he was someone great.10All of them, from the least to the greatest, listened to him eagerly, saying, “This man is the power of God that is called Great.”11And they listened eagerly to him because for a long time he had amazed them with his magic.12But when they believed Philip, who was proclaiming the good news about the kingdom of God and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women.13Even Simon himself believed. After being baptized, he stayed constantly with Philip and was amazed when he saw the signs and great miracles that took place.
