She appears a total of six times in four of the books of the New Testament. She was a Christian woman so wise in God’s Word that, alongside her husband, she helped to shape and guide the ministry of Apollos, one of Scripture’s most famous defenders of the Gospel. Acts 18:26 explains that “When Priscilla and Aquila heard [Apollos] preaching in the synagogue, they took him aside and explained the way of God even more accurately.”
Thanks to Priscilla and her husband, Apollos “greatly helped those who had believed through grace,” and he was able to publicly—and powerfully—refute those who opposed the Gospel, demonstrating by Scripture that Jesus was truly Christ, the promised Messiah (Acts 18:28).
As singles, wives, mothers, grandmothers and aunties, women play a vital role in homes and in the local church. Whether you are single or married, a mother, grandmother or auntie, knowing sound biblical teaching and recognizing error are survival skills. This is especially true because of the many self-appointed “men of God” in our day who prey on women and girls, twisting the Scriptures and falsely claiming spiritual authority over their lives (see here).
But knowing Scripture and essential Christian teaching prepares us to resist such—and it gives confidence in sharing the Gospel and “always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, but with gentleness and respect” (1 Peter 3:15).
Through training conferences, tracts, and more, Project Priscilla can help you to “stand firm against the schemes of the devil” (Ephesians 6:10). Will you catch the vision of women discipling women for biblical discernment in our generation? Contact us to learn more!
Project Priscilla partners with women’s organizations to bring lively, relevant teaching on biblical discernment and “rightly dividing the Word of truth” (2 Timothy 2:15 KJV). If you would like to invite an ACFAR speaker to your CU, ladies’ conference or school, contact us.
