May 18, Day 139 - Acts 18

Click here to go to Acts 18

More of Paul's journey and the struggles he faced. We are introduced to Priscilla and Aquila.  Jewish tradition dictated that the man's name was listed first which in the beginning of the chapter Luke did list Aquila first, but later and in other of Paul's writing, Priscilla's name was listed first. Signaling that she was the dominant teacher.  So contrary to what some will say, Paul didn't hate women or prevent them from teaching.  But more about that when we get to Corinthians.

Blessings on your Friday!


  1. Yet more things I totally forgot about! I feel like I must have skipped over Acts in the past.

  2. Me again. I thought I'd try to get some maps of the journeys of all these apostles. I found a pretty good website that splits the journeys of each out.

  3. Acts 18
    Divine Appointments
    Paul arrives in Corinth, meets Aquila and his wife Priscilla, who have left Rome because they have been "deported." They "happen" to have the same occupation.
    18 After staying in Corinth quite a while longer, Paul left for Ephesus. Priscilla and Aquila went with him.

    24 A Jew named Apollos, who had been born in Alexandria, arrived in the city of Ephesus.
    26 He began to speak boldly in the synagogue. When Priscilla and Aquila heard him, they took him home with them and explained God’s way to him more accurately.

    Divine Appointments. Arrival in just the right place. Meeting and intervention.

    Apollos goes to Greece and word is sent ahead to receive him.

    All in God's plan!
