Priscilla [EBD]

the wife of Aquila (Acts 18:2), who is never mentioned without her. Her name sometimes takes the precedence of his (Rom. 16:3; 2 Tim. 4:19). She took part with Aquila (q.v.) in insturcting Apollos (Acts 18:26).

Prisca [NAVE]

PRISCA, a disciple in Ephesus, 2 Tim. 4:19.

Priscilla [NAVE]

PRISCILLA, wife of Aquila. A disciple at Corinth, Acts 18:1-3, 18, 19, 26; Rom. 16:3, 4; 1 Cor. 16:19; 2 Tim. 4:19.

PRISCA [SMITH]

(ancient), (2 Timothy 4:19) or Priscil?la (a diminutive from Prisca), the wife of Aquila. [AQUILA] To what has been said elsewhere under the head of AQUILA the following may be added: We find that the name of the wife is placed before that of the husband in (Romans 16:3; 2 Timothy 4:19) and (according to some of the best MSS.) in (Acts 18:26) Hence we should be disposed to conclude that Priscilla was the more energetic character of the two. In fact we may say that Priscilla is the example of what the married woman may do for the general service of the Church, in conJunction with home duties, as Phoebe is the type of the unmarried servant of the Church, or deaconess.
