I have long wondered whether name ordering of "Priscilla & Aquila" has real significance. Chrysostom argues in favor of this, and reads this as implying Priscilla was more "pious"; Chrysostom also takes for granted that she had a major and direct role in instructing Apollos (1/2) via Twitter Nijay K Gupta.
