Apollos was a contemporary of Paul and a preacher of the Good News of Jesus. He was an Alexandrian Jew. He had been a preacher in Ephesus knowing only of the baptism of John the Baptist until Priscilla and Aquilla corrected him and he moved to Corinth to preach the full message of Jesus there and became an important leader within the Church. Some have speculated Apollos wrote the book of Hebrews, but this matter has never been resolved.
