Junia the (Female) Apostle

Today I’m beginning my research into Junia* the (female) apostle, referenced by Paul as “prominent among the apostles” in Romans 16:7. She’ll be featured in an upcoming sermon.

*For those of you named Julie, the NRSV has the intriguing footnote that “other ancient authorities read Julia.”

Next Sunday’s Sermon

Hopefully, I won’t come to regret sharing this, but I’m really looking forward to this Sunday’s sermon. I plan to preach on Jeremiah 32:1-15. I believe this is one of the greatest passages on divine and human faithfulness found in the Old Testament, but it takes a little unpacking before one can understand the full scope of what is going on.
