Philip was one of Jesus' twelve Apostles, as confirmed by the lists of the Apostles in the New Testament books of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and in Acts. Philip is also mentioned in the Gospel of John.

Jesus called Philip, who brought Nathanael to Christ also. Philip spoke briefly with Jesus in connection with the miracle of the multiplication of the loaves and fishes.

The Hellenistic Jews from Bethsaida approached Philip to introduce them to Jesus. Also, just prior to the Passion, Philip asked Jesus to show the Apostles the Father (God) and that would be fine for them. Jesus responded that He and the Father were one.

Before following Jesus, Philip may have been a disciple of John the Baptist.
