WELCOME STRANGER | Priscilla and Aquila | Acts 18:1-3, 18-28 | Andrew Gardner

WELCOME STRANGER | Priscilla and Aquila | Acts 18:1-3, 18-28 | Andrew Gardner

Andrew Gardner begins our Welcome Stranger series by looking at Priscilla and Aquila who can be found in Acts 18:1-3 and Acts 18:18-28.

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.

Andrew Gardner continues our Freedom series looking at Romans 8.

What would it feel like to benefit from someone’s will? If you are the heir, you get what is passed down to you. Every Christian is an heir of their Father God. God’s will is that anyone ‘in Christ Jesus’ should not be condemned for sin, but set free. We’ll look at what Romans 8 says about being set free by the ‘law of the Spirit.’
