BIBLE NAMES REVEALED: JUNIA

(Message by Tanny Keng)

1. Bible Names Revealed

a) The Bible is an historic record of real people and places. Learn who's who, their relationships, and the meaning of their names.

2. Junia

a) Also known as: Junias.

b) Meaning: Belongs to Juno.

c) The name of a Jewish Christian in Rome who was imprisoned with Paul and Andronicus.

d) Paul sends greetings to Junia and Andronicus and notes that they were of note among the apostles, and that they were followers of Christ before him (Romans 16:7).

e) It is not absolutely clear whether this name is masculine or feminine. If feminine, there is a possibility that this was the wife or sister of Andronicus. However, in the context of the situation described, it seems more likely that Junia was simply another man. This seems to be the assumption of most scholars.


The End ...
