Lesser known characters :: Junia and Andronicus


The Apostle Paul in his letter to the Romans requests to salute Andronicus and Junia, whom he calls fellow-prisoners. Junia and Andronicus were imprisoned along with Paul for their faith in Jesus Christ. Paul, in fact refers to them as noteworthy apostles who were in Christ even before him.

What can we learn from Junia and Andronicus?
Are we willing to be imprisoned with fellow believers for our faith in Christ Jesus? Would you and I be referred to as being noteworthy disciples of Jesus Christ? Think about it.

Romans 16:7 (KJV)
7 Salute Andronicus and Junia, my kinsmen, and my fellow-prisoners, who are of note among the apostles, who also were in Christ before me.
