People: Aquila

Aquila

A co-worker with Paul and the husband of Priscilla. 

Background

Aquila was a Jewish Christian whom Paul met in Corinth. Aquila and his wife, Priscilla, along with many other Jews had been expelled from Rome by Emperor Claudius. Aquila and Priscilla were tentmakers with whom Paul stayed in Corinth because they were of the same trade (Acts 18:1-3). They went with Paul to Ephesus, where they hosted a house church (1 Corinthians 16:19). Later, they apparently returned to Rome, where again a house church met in their home (Romans 16:3-5).
