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.”
