Junia: an apostle before Paul

Tonight, I finished Yii-Jan Lin‘s wonderful article ‘Junia: An Apostle before Paul’, JBL 139.1 (2020): 191-209. If you’re interested in the debate over Junia’s identity, and her apostleship, you’ll want to read it. Lin makes a convincing (IMO) argument that Paul’s own understanding of his apostleship, and apostleship in general, add weight to the argument that he is saying that Andronicus and Junia were notable apostles not just well-known by the apostles (seeing that Paul doesn’t tend to care much for the opinions of the other apostles).
