Acts 18:23-25 Disciples’ Literal New Testament (DLNT)

Paul Embarks On a Third Journey. Priscilla And Aquila Update Apollos

23 And having done some time there, he went forth[a], going successively through the Galatian region[b] and Phrygia, strengthening all the disciples. 24 Now a certain Jew— Apollos by name, an Alexandrian by nationality, an eloquent man— came to Ephesus, being powerful in the Scriptures. 25 This one had been instructed as to the way of the Lord. And boiling in spirit, he was speaking and teaching accurately the things concerning Jesus, knowing-about only the baptism of John.


  1. Acts 18:23 Note that the church is not mentioned this time. Paul is returning to the base of operations in Ephesus in Asia which he has already chosen and prepared in v 19.
  2. Acts 18:23 Or, the Galatian and Phrygian region, referring to one region instead of two, as in 16:6.

Acts 18:23-25 New International Version (NIV)

23 After spending some time in Antioch, Paul set out from there and traveled from place to place throughout the region of Galatia and Phrygia, strengthening all the disciples.

24 Meanwhile a Jew named Apollos, a native of Alexandria, came to Ephesus. He was a learned man, with a thorough knowledge of the Scriptures. 25 He had been instructed in the way of the Lord, and he spoke with great fervor[a] and taught about Jesus accurately, though he knew only the baptism of John.
