Aquila

Additional Links

Aquila (ăk'wĭ-lah), an eagle. A Jew of Pontus whom Paul found at Corinth on his arrival from Athens. Acts 18:2. He had fled, with his wife Priscilla, from Rome, in consequence of an order of Claudius commanding all Jews to leave the city. He became acquainted with Paul, and they abode together, and wrought at their common trade of making the Cilician tent or hair cloth. On the departure of the apostle from Corinth, a year and six months after, Priscilla and Aquila accompanied him to Ephesus. There they remained, and there they taught Apollos. Acts 18:18-19; Acts 18:24-26. At what time they became Christians is uncertain, but they appear to have specially helped Paul, and to have labored in Rome. Romans 16:3-5.
