TENTMAKER (σκηνοποιός, G5010). Tentmaker is mentioned only once in the Bible and that reference introduces three tentmakers. Paul had just come from Athens to Corinth, and to find suitable lodging he sought one of his own race and his own trade. He found both in “a Jew named Aquila...with his wife Priscilla...and because he was of the same trade he stayed with them, and they worked, for by trade they were tentmakers” (
