Throughout Paul’s ministry, he was always on the lookout for God to send persons into his life who were potential partners. “After this Paul left Athens and went to Corinth. And he found a Jew named Aquila, a native of Pontus, recently come from Italy with his wife Priscilla…And he went to see them” (Acts 18:1–2). You can imagine the conversations between them that strengthened their faith and equipped this husband/wife team for helping Paul in his ministry. Yes, they also were tentmakers like Paul, but their time together proved they had a common bond in the Lord.
In verses 24 to 26, Aquila and Pricilla listened to others in ministry to see how effective they were. They heard Apollos who was “”eloquent and competent in the Scriptures” because “he had been instructed in the way of the Lord.” Apollos was “fervent in spirit…spoke and taught accurately the things concerning Jesus.” Even though he “spoke boldly in the synagogue”, he needed personal discipling to understand “the way of God more accurately.”
How was this to be accomplished? Aquila and Pricilla took Apollos “aside and explained to him the way of God more accurately.”
