Aquila and Priscilla met Paul in Corinth after they had fled Rome in Claudius’s persecution of the Jews, and were earning their living as tent-makers. They found Christ and a year and a half later Paul took them with him to Ephesus where the Church was established in their home. They mentored Apollos and supported Timothy when he became pastor. We consider the dynamics of this active Christian couple where, unusually for the time, Priscilla is often mentioned first, indicating her strong role in the couple’s witness and ministry behind the scenes.
