What does Acts 21:8 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Acts 21:8

And the next day we that were of Paul's company departed,
&c.] From Ptolemais, as Sopater, Aristarchus, Secundus, Timotheus, Tychicus, Trophimus, and Luke, the writer of this history; see ( Acts 20:4 )

and came unto Caesarea;
not Caesarea Philippi, mentioned in ( Matthew 16:13 ) but that Caesarea which was formerly called Strato's tower, and was a very good sea port; see ( Acts 8:40 ) ( 9:30 ) ( 10:1 ) ( 18:22 ) .

and we entered into the house of Philip the evangelist;
not a writer of a Gospel, but a preacher of the Gospel, and perhaps not an ordinary one, but was one of those spoken of in ( Ephesians 4:11 ) which was an office inferior to an apostle, and yet above an ordinary pastor and teacher; this man, very likely, was the same that taught in Samaria, and baptized the eunuch, and who after that settled at Caesarea; see ( Acts 8:40 ) .

which was one of the seven;
of the seven deacons of the church at Jerusalem, ( Acts 6:5 ) and abode with him; so long as they continued at Caesarea.
