Bible Couples: Aquila and Priscilla

Aquila and Priscilla are mentioned six times in the Bible, and never one without the other. They were a Gospel team. Four of the six times, Priscilla is mentioned first, perhaps indicating the strength of her zeal and personality. The couple had a tent-making business, but their real occupation was evangelistic. They became lifelong friends with the apostle Paul and joined him in his soul-winning efforts. They assisted him in Corinth, joined him in Ephesus, and “risked their necks” for him amid persecution (Romans 16:4). When Apollos came through the area preaching the baptism of John, Priscilla and Aquila pulled him aside and explained to him the Gospel of Jesus Christ more accurately.

Recommended Reading: Acts 18:24-28

24Now a certain Jew named Apollos, born at Alexandria, an eloquent man and mighty in the Scriptures, came to Ephesus. 25 This man had been instructed in the way of the Lord; and being fervent in spirit, he spoke and taught accurately the things of the Lord, though he knew only the baptism of John. 26 So he began to speak boldly in the synagogue. When Aquila and Priscilla heard him, they took him aside and explained to him the way of God more accurately. 27 And when he desired to cross to Achaia, the brethren wrote, exhorting the disciples to receive him; and when he arrived, he greatly helped those who had believed through grace; 28 for he vigorously refuted the Jews publicly, showing from the Scriptures that Jesus is the Christ.

God’s best plan for a marriage always involves ministry. He doesn’t bring us together simply to satisfy our own needs. He wants husbands and wives to pray together, attend church together, serve together, win souls together, raise children together, and explain the Gospel to others as accurately as we can.

Marriage is ministry—two lives woven together to accomplish what neither could do alone. May God fill our land with couples like Aquila and Priscilla.

A Single Thought: When we join with others to complete a task, the load is lighter, and the joy is increased.
