Among the great of the Christian Orators of the early church was Apollos, a Jew from Alexandria. Apollos was "eloquent and mighty in the Scriptures" and "instructed in the way of the Lord; and being fervent in the spirit, he spoke and taught diligently the things of the Lord, knowing only the baptism of John." Apollos, before his arrival at Ephesus knew only the baptism of John and more perfectly taught by Aquila and Priscilla. >From here, Apollos became a preacher of the gospel, first in Achaia and then in Corinth, where he watered that which Paul planted.

Apollos' character was not unlike that of Paul; they were equally grieved at the dissensions of the Corinthians. About 56, he came to Ephesus.

Many of the Corinthians became so much attached to him as to produce a schism in the Church, some saying "I am of Paul," others "I am of Apollos, or I am of Christ." That this denominational feeling was not encouraged by Apollos is evident from the manner in which Paul speaks of him and his unwillingness to return to Corinth. Apollos was doubtless with Paul at this time in Ephesus.

Jerome is of the opinion that Apollos afterwards returned to Corinth from Crete and remained there until the divisions were over and later became Bishop of Corinth. There is also a tradition that became Bishop of Caesarea.
