Acts 18:18 And Paul after this tarried there yet a good while, and then took his leave of the brethren, and sailed thence into Syria, and with him Priscilla and Aquila; having shorn his head in Cenchrea: for he had a vow. (KJV) There seems to be some differences of opinion as to whether the individual referred to as shaving his head as the result of a vow is the Apostle Paul or the man named Aquila. If Aquila, one could make the argument that he did so before he was saved. If Paul, then he would seem to be softening his previous stand against legalism (Acts 15). He not only vowed a vow, but it appears that Paul was very dogmatic about leaving Corinth to attend a feast in Jerusalem (18:21).
