Priscilla was a Jewish woman from Rome who converted to Christianity. Her husband was named Aquila. They first met the apostle Paul in Corinth, became good friends of his and shared in his work. In Romans 16:3-4, Paul says, “Greet Priscilla and Aquila, who work with me in Christ Jesus, and who risked their necks for my life, to whom not only I give thanks, but also all the churches of the Gentiles.” These two were tentmakers like Paul. He also explains in Acts 18 that when Apollos began to speak in Ephesus, it was Priscilla and Aquila together who pulled him aside and explained the way of God. Eventually the Corinthian church met in their home. These two remarkable people belong in the pantheon of Christian heroes, and their ministry is both an encouragement and an example for us. Priscilla is a great example of how a husband and wife can work together in partnership for Jesus.
