18 Paul, having remained many days longer, atook leave of bthe brethren and put out to sea for cSyria, and with him were dPriscilla and dAquila. In eCenchrea 1he fhad his hair cut, for he was keeping a vow.

19 They came to aEphesus, and he left them there. Now he himself entered bthe synagogue and reasoned with the Jews.

20 When they asked him to stay for a longer time, he did not consent,

21 but ataking leave of them and saying, “I will return to you again bif God wills,” he set sail from cEphesus.

22 When he had landed at aCaesarea, he went up and greeted the church, and went down to bAntioch.

Third Missionary Journey

23 And having spent some time there, he left and passed successively through the aGalatian region and Phrygia, strengthening all the disciples.

24 Now a Jew named aApollos, an bAlexandrian by birth, 1an eloquent man, came to cEphesus; and he was mighty in the Scriptures.

25 This man had been instructed in athe way of the Lord; and being fervent in spirit, he was speaking and teaching accurately the things concerning Jesus, being acquainted only with bthe baptism of John;

26 and 1he began to speak out boldly in the synagogue. But when aPriscilla and Aquila heard him, they took him aside and explained to him bthe way of God more accurately.

27 And when he wanted to go across to aAchaia, bthe brethren encouraged him and wrote to cthe disciples to welcome him; and when he had arrived, he greatly 1helped those who had believed through grace,

28 for he powerfully refuted the Jews in public, demonstrating aby the Scriptures that bJesus was the 1Christ.
