Bible: Acts 18:24-19:1

Apollos Begins His Ministry

18:24 Now a Jew named Apollos, a native of Alexandria, arrived in Ephesus. 1  He was an eloquent speaker, 2  well-versed 3  in the scriptures. 18:25 He had been instructed in 4  the way of the Lord, and with great enthusiasm 5  he spoke and taught accurately the facts 6  about Jesus, although he knew 7  only the baptism of John. 18:26 He began to speak out fearlessly 8  in the synagogue, 9  but when Priscilla and Aquila 10  heard him, they took him aside 11  and explained the way of God to him more accurately. 18:27 When Apollos 12  wanted to cross over to Achaia, 13  the brothers encouraged 14  him 15  and wrote to the disciples to welcome him. When he arrived, he 16  assisted greatly those who had believed by grace, 18:28 for he refuted the Jews vigorously 17  in public debate, 18  demonstrating from the scriptures that the Christ 19  was Jesus. 20
