Acts 18:1-3, 18-21, 24-26; Romans 16:3-4 NLT


--------------------Acts 18:1-3-------------------------------

1. Then Paul left Athens and went to Corinth.

2. There he became acquainted with a Jew named Aquila, born in Pontus, who had recently arrived from Italy with his wife, Priscilla. They had left Italy when Claudius Caesar deported all Jews from Rome.

3. Paul lived and worked with them, for they were tentmakers just as he was.

--------------------------18-21--------------------------------------

18. Paul stayed in Corinth for some time after that, then said good-bye to the brothers and sisters and went to nearby Cenchrea. There he shaved his head according to Jewish custom, marking the end of a vow. Then he set sail for Syria, taking Priscilla and Aquila with him.

19. They stopped first at the port of Ephesus, where Paul left the others behind. While he was there, he went to the synagogue to reason with the Jews.

20. They asked him to stay longer, but he declined.

21. As he left, however, he said, "I will come back later, God willing." Then he set sail from Ephesus.

------------------------24-26----------------------------------------

24. Meanwhile, a Jew named Apollos, an eloquent speaker who knew the Scriptures well, had arrived in Ephesus from Alexandria in Egypt.

25. He had been taught the way of the Lord, and he taught others about Jesus with an enthusiastic spirit and with accuracy. However, he knew only about John's baptism.

26. When Priscilla and Aquila heard him preaching boldly in the synagogue, they took him aside and explained the way of God even more accurately.

--------------------Romans 16:3-4----------------------------

3. Give my greetings to Priscilla and Aquila, my co-workers in the ministry of Christ Jesus.

4. In fact, they once risked their lives for me. I am thankful to them, and so are all the Gentile churches.
