Apollos -- "An Eloquent Man"

In Acts 18:24-28, we read of a Jewish Christian by the name of Apollos, born in the Egyptian seaport of Alexandria. According to the inspired writer, Luke, Apollos was “an eloquent man, mighty in the Scriptures” (Acts 18:24 KJV). Paul mentions Apollos several times in his first letter to the brethren in Corinth as a fellow laborer highly regarded among the disciples (cf. 1 Corinthians 1:12; 1 Corinthians 3:4-6; 1 Corinthians 3:22; 1 Corinthians 4:6; 1 Corinthians 16:12; Titus 3:13).

Obviously, Apollos knew God’s word and was able to speak and teach the Word enthusiastically and accurately (Acts 18:25). But what does it mean when Luke says Apollos was “an eloquent man?

What qualities does the word “eloquent” suggest to us?
