24 wNow a certain Jew named Apollos, born at Alexandria, an eloquent man and mighty in the Scriptures, came to Ephesus. 25 This man had been instructed in the way of the Lord; and being xfervent in spirit, he spoke and taught accurately the things of the Lord, ythough he knew only the baptism of John. 26 So he began to speak boldly in the synagogue. When Aquila and Priscilla heard him, they took him aside and explained to him the way of God more accurately. 27 And when he desired to cross to Achaia, the brethren wrote, exhorting the disciples to receive him; and when he arrived, zhe greatly helped those who had believed through grace; 28 for he vigorously refuted the Jews publicly, ashowing from the Scriptures that Jesus is the Christ.
