We are not Jupiters; we are not apollos; but we can take our stand and shoot our arrows a little way into the dark.
How the devil can a whole bunch of perfect apollos disappear that way?
It is Paul and apollos who plant and water, but God who giveth the increase.
The teaching of apollos was not opposed to Paul's, but supplementary of it.
He, too, was the exception, as much and perhaps more than the Jupiters and the apollos.
And certainly apollos could not say, "I have planted as well as watered."
Priscilla was associated with Aquila in "expounding the way of God more perfectly to apollos."
Paul may plant, and apollos water, but God giveth the increase.
The man who held to Paul and would learn nothing from apollos or Peter was defrauding himself of his rights.
For these are they who are of Paul, and of apollos, and of Cephas.
Olympian deity, god of music, poetry, medicine, etc., later identified with Helios, the sun god; the name is a Latin form of Greek Apollon, said to be perhaps related to an obsolete Greek verb meaning "to drive away" (evil, etc.) [Klein, citing Usener].
The Greek and Roman god of poetry, prophecy, medicine, and light. Apollo represents all aspects of civilization and order. He was worshiped at the Delphic oracle, where a priestess gave forth his predictions. Zeus was his father, and Artemis was his sister. He is sometimes identified with Hyperion, the Titan he succeeded.
Note: As a representative of controlled and ordered nature, Apollo is often contrasted with Dionysus, the god who represents wild, creative energies.
Note: The sun was sometimes described as Apollo's chariot, riding across the sky.
a Jew "born at Alexandria," a man well versed in the Scriptures and eloquent (Acts 18:24; R.V., "learned"). He came to Ephesus (about A.D. 49), where he spake "boldly" in the synagogue (18:26), although he did not know as yet that Jesus of Nazareth was the Messiah. Aquila and Priscilla instructed him more perfectly in "the way of God", i.e., in the knowledge of Christ. He then proceeded to Corinth, where he met Paul (Acts 18:27; 19:1). He was there very useful in watering the good seed Paul had sown (1 Cor. 1:12), and in gaining many to Christ. His disciples were much attached to him (1 Cor. 3:4-7, 22). He was with Paul at Ephesus when he wrote the First Epistle to the Corinthians; and Paul makes kindly reference to him in his letter to Titus (3:13). Some have supposed, although without sufficient ground, that he was the author of the Epistle to the Hebrews.
