Apollos of Alexandria: Portrait of an Unknown


Vollenweider, Samuel (2021). Apollos of Alexandria: Portrait of an Unknown. In: Schliesser, Benjamin; Rüggemeier, Jan; Krauss, Thomas J; Frey, Jörg; Herrmann, Daniel. Alexandria : Hub of the Hellenistic World. Tübingen: Mohr Siebeck, 325-344.

Abstract

The article offers a portrait of Apollos of Alexandria, a wandering Jewish Early Christian teacher who is mentionned in the New Testament, esp. in Acts 18/19 and 1 Cor 3. Apollos is said to be versed in the Scriptures and trained in rhetoric. He seems to be a Christian apostle independent of Paul in Ephesus and Corinth. The article probes the hypothesis that Apollos has been a preacher of pneumatic wisdom, which Paul attacks in 1 Cor 1–4, and being so a rival of Paul. Luke represents him as an incompletely Christianized disciple of John.
