Prayed Daily

Aquila and PriscillaSaint Paul used Christian faith houses to offer hospitality and teach the Scriptures. He showed his loyalty to the hope of Israel, and his deep conviction that in Jesus salvation was to be found. Dr. Michael Green (1930-present) added 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 Christian faith house belonged to a first century couple, Aquila and Priscilla. 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 that they discovered Apollos, and seeing that they could be of help to this most promising and talented man, they invited him round to their home and instructed him further in the faith. "What uses did early Christians make of their house? Which of these could be useful today?"
