Aquila and Priscilla in Ephesus

Priscilla and Aquila net Apostle Paul while he was in Corinth. This instance is mentioned in Acts 18:1–28. They were from the city of Rome, but they had to come to Corinth since The Roman Emperor Claudius banished all the Jewish people from Rome. Priscilla and Aquila were tentmakers just like Paul. We believe they met thanks to their common business. Priscilla and his wife Aquila were originally Jewish, and they converted into Christianity after meeting Apostle Paul.
