Priscilla and Aquila

Priscilla and Aquila were a married couple from Italy who found themselves in Corinth after all Jews were expelled from Rome by the emperor Claudius (see New Testament Roman Emperors). There they became prominent Christians and close friends with the apostle Paul who they met during his travels through the area (see Paul's First Missionary Journey, Paul's Second Missionary Journey and Paul's Third Missionary Journey).

Priscilla and Aquila Tentmakers With Paul

"After this he left Athens [see Paul In Athens] and went to Corinth. And he found a Jew named Aquila, a native of Pontus, lately come from Italy with his wife Priscilla, because Claudius had commanded all the Jews to leave Rome. And he went to see them; and because he was of the same trade he stayed with them, and they worked, for by trade they were tentmakers." (Acts 18:1-3 RSV)

Traveled With Paul To Ephesus

"After this Paul stayed many days longer, and then took leave of the brethren and sailed for Syria, and with him Priscilla and Aquila. At Cenchreae he cut his hair, for he had a vow. And they came to Ephesus, and he left them there; but he himself went into the synagogue and argued with the Jews." (Acts 18:18-19 RSV)

Taught Apollos

"Now a Jew named Apollos, a native of Alexandria, came to Ephesus. He was an eloquent man, well versed in the Scriptures. He had been instructed in The Way of The Lord; and being fervent in spirit, he spoke and taught accurately the things concerning Jesus, though he knew only the baptism of John [see Baptism and John The Baptist]. He began to speak boldly in the synagogue; but when Priscilla and Aquila heard him, they took him and expounded to him the way of God more accurately. And when he wished to cross to Achaia, the brethren encouraged him, and wrote to the disciples to receive him. When he arrived, he greatly helped those who through Grace had believed, for he powerfully confuted the Jews in public, showing by the Scriptures that the Christ was Jesus." (Acts 18:24-28 RSV)

Risked Their Lives For The Gospel

"Greet Priscilla and Aquila, my fellow workers in Christ Jesus [see Jesus Christ, The Logos and The Messiah], who risked their necks for my life, to whom not only I but also all the churches of the Gentiles give thanks." (Romans 16:3 RSV)
