P oul We, Very Fortunate In His Friends :SAINT PAUL in his missionary, ~ Journeys was subject to many ~i!:~: dangers, privations and hardships: ~ but he was fortunate in his friends. ~, (Read Acts 18.) ~ ~ Wherever he went he made. or found, friendly Christian converts ~: and hospitable homes. Moreover. ~:: he seems to have been not only a welcome guest, but one easy to en- ,terrain; for wherever it was possi- ble he worked at his tent-making [~: craft. Paul was strong for the doctrine i that if a man didn't work he had no right to eat. In all such matters Paul set a : perfect example. He recognized that all men might not be as re- sourceful and efficient as himself, ~: and he approved it as an ordinance of God that those who preached !,: the gospel should live by the gos- pel (I Corinthians 9:14) But he took pride in the fact that he was able to support himself. This probably was easy when he stayed in Corinth with the Chris- tian couple, Aquila and Priscilla, for like himself they were tent- makers, and in that busy Grecian i.i: :: city there was probably t)lenty of isale for their product. There was i !an early Christian tradition to the inflect that Priscilla was a Roman ilady of some prominence, but IAquila was a Jew, and they had .... had to leave Rome because of a decree of the Emperor Claudius !:' expelling the Jews from that im- peria! city. ~ The fact that the couple are i:: referred to more often as Pris- ~' cilia and Aquila, than as Aquila and Priscilla, would seem to sug- gest that the wife was the more i forceful of the two. Chrysostom. one of the fathers of the early church, says that it was Priscilla Who gave the instruction to Apel- i IOS in the Christian way (Acts 18: 24-28). + i~ ~ Undoubtedly this Christian cou- ple in entertaining Paul received a great deal more than they gave, To have in their home, and to work day by day with such a well-in- formed and noble Christian. must have been a very rich experience. $0 N/ce To COma i + HOME TO !
