Priscilla's House

Aquila and PriscillaPaul used Christian faith houses to offer hospitality, he showed his understanding of the Scriptures, his loyalty to the hope of Israel, and his deep conviction that in Jesus salvation was to be found. Dr. Michael Green adds in "Evangelism in the Early Church," "when Paul claimed in his farewell address to the Ephesian elders that he had taught them, in public and from house to house, testifying both to Jews and to Greeks of repentance to God and of faith in our Lord Jesus Christ, it was no idle boast. One of the Christian faith houses belonged to a first century couple, Aquila and Priscilla, and is a good example for us. Whether or not they were Christians before they met Paul at Corinth is disputed, but thereafter there could be no doubt about the matter. It was, obviously enough, one of a number of worshiping Christian faith houses."

Teach the Scriptures

As Jews, Aquila and Priscilla would have prayed daily in their home together, as Christians they would have done no less. They were probably regular attendees at the synagogue, and it was here they discovered Apollos, and seeing that they could be of help to this most promising and talented man, they invited him round to one of their home and instructed him further in the faith. "What uses did early Christians make of their houses? Which of these could be useful today?"
