J. Piper and W. Grudem, ‘An Overview of Central Concerns: Questions and Answers’, in J. Piper and W. Grudem, eds., Recovering Biblical Manhood and Womanhood: A Response to Evangelical Feminism, argue: ‘The Church Fathers were evidently divided . . ., Epiphanius assuming [∆Iounia] is masculine, Chrysostom assuming it is feminine. Perhaps somewhat more weight may be given to the statement by Epiphanius, since he appears to know more specific information about Junias (that he became bishop of Apameia), while Chrysostom gives no more information than what he could deduce from Romans 16:7.’ How can I study this in Logos?

Well, it's 'Biblical scholars' hot on the trail.  Slippery quotes from 250 years later, believe it or not. And then Panarion.

If you indeed searched and fackbook'd Junia, you'd already know of accents, and 'messengers' (in whatever capacity; Jesus' messengers or 'the 12', or from individual groups or just individuals). 

More importantly, the sociological question: gender was very important to churchmen.
