Men and Women of the Bible ~ Blogging through the Alphabet (P)

Blogging through the Alphabet Men and Women of the Bible

Priscilla: “Ancient”

Priscilla is a women that lived during Paul’s time. She is never mentioned in the Bible without her husband. They must have had a strong marriage and were together all of the time since they are always mentioned together. They also loved the Lord and wanted others to know about Him.

Acts 18:2 ~ And found a certain Jew named Aquila, born in Pontus, lately come from Italy, with his wife Priscilla; (because that Claudius had commanded all Jews to depart from Rome:) and came unto them.

Romans 16:3-4 ~ Greet Priscilla and Aquila my helpers in Christ Jesus: Who have for my life laid down their own necks: unto whom not only I give thanks, but also all the churches of the Gentiles.

Philip: “Lover of horses”

Philip was one of the twelve disciples. He lived in the city of Bethsaida and readily accepted Jesus’ call to be one of the disciples. He was excited and ran off to tell his friend Nathaneal. We can also assume he was smart since he calculated the cost of feeding the 5,000. After Jesus ascended into Heaven, it is believed that Philip went to Phrygia as a missionary and was martyred in Hierapolis.

John 1:43-45 ~  The day following Jesus would go forth into Galilee, and findeth Philip, and saith unto him, Follow me.  Now Philip was of Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter. Philip findeth Nathanael, and saith unto him, We have found him, of whom Moses in the law, and the prophets, did write, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.

John 6:7 ~ Philip answered him, Two hundred pennyworth of bread is not sufficient for them, that every one of them may take a little.
