After leaving Corinth, Paul continues his work of spreading the gospel and strengthening believers wherever he goes. On his way back, he stops in Jerusalem and Antioch to check in. From there he goes out again, spending significant time in Ephesus. While in Ephesus, a riot breaks out because of the impact of Paul’s teaching about Jesus.
As an aside in this passage we learn about Apollos. He knew about Jesus and preached about him, but it wasn’t completely accurate. So, we see believers coming alongside him to add what was missing in his teaching. This is a vital part of discipleship. We need to help others grow in their understanding of Scripture. But, as disciples ourselves, we must be receptive to receiving correction and being shown where our faith needs bolstering.
Are you willing to take correction like Apollos did?
