Paul and His Missionary Friends (Part 2)
By: Scot McKnight
When God calls His people into mission He doesn’t call individuals, rather He calls a community.
Paul exemplifies this reality with his missionary friends. These friends are indispensable to God’s work with Paul in causing the Kingdom to take root in the 1st Century world. Some of Paul’s closest missionary friends included Priscilla and Aquila who provide a beautiful example of an entire household doing ministry together. Epaphras is another great example of how Paul befriended a nonbeliever, led them into a relationship with Jesus, and sent them out to do ministry.
