But Philip was found at Azotus: and passing through he preached in all the cities, till he came to Caesarea.
Note 2 at Ac 8:40: Caesarea was a town on the coast of Palestine that was built by Herod the Great from approximately 25 to 13 B.C. It was named in honor of Caesar Augustus. It is located approximately twenty-three miles south-southwest of Mount Carmel.
Philip was found in Caesarea after his translation, and Ac 21:8 reveals that he took up residence there. Cornelius, a Roman centurion who became a Christian, also lived in Caesarea (Ac 10:1). Paul visited this city three times (Ac 18:22; 21:8, and 16). Paul was later imprisoned there (Ac 23:23 and 33) and was tried before Festus and Agrippa (Ac 25:1-4, 6-13; and 26:1). Caesarea was different than Caesarea Philippi (see note 1 at Mt 16:13).
