During Paul’s travels he met many friends. Two very important friends were named Aquila and Priscilla. These two ministered to Paul by providing friendship and assisted Paul with tent-making when he needed it. This illustration shows them working together.
Aquilla and Priscilla
Aquila and Priscilla were a married couple who met Paul in Corinth. Since they were also tentmakers as Paul was, the three worked together in the tent making trade (see Acts 18:1-3). They also were Christians. We don’t know the timing or the circumstances of their coming to Christ, but Scripture does tell us that they partnered with Paul not only in the business of tent making, but also in efforts to spread the gospel. A more complete article about Aquila and Priscilla is available on Sunday School Zone.
This fun felt craft, based on the story of Aquilla and Priscilla found in Acts 18:1-4, 18-19, will remind children that just as Paul worked with Priscilla and Aquilla to make tents, we must all work together to tell about Jesus. Kids will love playing with this tent after creating it.
