I agree completely with the conclusions of the author of this piece. Regardless of the gender of the name, Junia/Junias (a debate which apparently cannot be settled), I would argue that the text itself does not identify this person as an apostle but only as one whom the apostles admired and esteemed. For additional reasons why I do not believe a woman can be an apostle or a pastoral elder, please read my article called "The Role of Women in the Local Assembly." It can be found on the Apostolic Free Library at
