Display Chapter and Footnotes
24 Now a certain Jew named Apollos, born in Alexandria, who was an eloquent man and mighty in the scriptures, came to Ephesus.
25 This man had been taught in the way of the Lord; and being very enthusiastic, he spoke and taught diligently the things of the Lord, though he knew only the baptism of John.
26 And he began to speak boldly in the synagogue. When Aquila and Priscilla heard him, they took him with them and explained the way of God more accurately to him.1
1 When Aquila and Priscilla heard him, they took him with them and explained the way of God more accurately to him. Priscilla was a woman, who with her husband took Apollos, a man, aside and corrected a man. How could that be, when Paul said he did not permit a woman to teach or have authority over a man? Paul was speaking about women who were still under the law, whose tongues were not yet controlled by the Spirit of the Lord. But a woman who is led by the Spirit of God is a Son of God, and male and female are one in Christ.
