man-conquering, a Jewish Christian, the kinsman and fellowprisoner of Paul (Ro 16:7); "of note among the apostles."
A Christian at Rome, saluted by Paul (Ro 16:7). He and Junia were Paul's "kinsmen" (or the Greek may mean "fellow countrymen," Ro 16:11-21) "and fellow prisoners, of note among the apostles" (in the wider sense than the Twelve: 14/4'>Ac 14:4,14; 2Co 8:23; 1Th 2:6), "and in Christ" (by faith) "before" him. Bishop of Pannonia subsequently, says "Hippolytus."
A Christian greeted by St. Paul (Ro 16:7) as a 'kinsman,' i.e. as a fellow-countryman (cf. Ro 9:3; 16:11,21), who had been imprisoned for Christ; distinguished as an Apostle (in the largest sense of the name), and a believer from early days, having perhaps come to Rome after the persecution of Ac 11:19).
A. J. Maclean.
Kinsman of Paul at Rome, who with Junia were his fellow prisoners, and of whom he said they were in Christ before him. Ro 16:7.
