This week Joy Heenan will continuing with our series Acting Out and speaking on ‘Sacrificial Hospitality’. As you read through this passage you may like to consider the following questions:


  • Imagine yourself in the home of Priscilla & Aquila, what do you think the dinner table conversation was like when Apollos visited?
  • Who might you invite into your home, and what difference might it make to them?
  • How does that question make you feel?


24 Meanwhile a Jew named Apollos, a native of Alexandria, came to Ephesus. He was a learned man, with a thorough knowledge of the Scriptures. 25 He had been instructed in the way of the Lord, and he spoke with great fervor[a] and taught about Jesus accurately, though he knew only the baptism of John. 26 He began to speak boldly in the synagogue. When Priscilla and Aquila heard him, they invited him to their home and explained to him the way of God more adequately.

27 When Apollos wanted to go to Achaia, the brothers and sisters encouraged him and wrote to the disciples there to welcome him. When he arrived, he was a great help to those who by grace had believed. 28 For he vigorously refuted his Jewish opponents in public debate, proving from the Scriptures that Jesus was the Messiah.
