Re: Junia an Apostle or Junia considered prominent by the Apostles?

Someone on another mailing list told me that in Romans 16:7 it doesn't
matter whether Junia is a man's name or a woman's name because the
Greek means that Andronicus and Junia are considered prominent by the
Apostles instead of meaning that Andronicus and Junias are prominent
among the Apostles. In other words, Junia is either a prominent
apostle or she is considered prominent by the apostles. How to
translate en tois apostolois?
