Acts 18:24-26 – Priscilla and Aquila Instruct Apollos


Acts 18:24-26


When Apollos, an enthusiastic believer from Alexandria, comes to Ephesus, he receives instruction from Priscilla and her husband, Aquila.


Although Apollos is eloquent, enthusiastic, and “well-versed in the Scriptures,” his teachings show him to be in need of further instruction. Priscilla and Aquila teach him so that he might speak “more accurately.” This passage shows Priscilla as a leader. The mention of her name before the name of her husband (also in Acts 18:18; Romans 16:3; 2 Timothy 4:19) is a way of honoring her. She and Aquila worked with Paul and carried on without him when he moved on in his journey.
