A kinsman of Paul's, and a fellow prisoner (Rom. 16:7) .
Meta. Paul's statement that Andronicus was "of note among the apostles," and was "in Christ before me," means that man was ideally perfect in the Christ mind from the beginning, before he ever exercised his free will in a perverse way; also that he is inherently perfect before his will is finally converted to Truth (Paul signifying here the converted will). Andronicus stands for knowledge of this Truth, a knowledge that makes us "more than conquerors" in all things pertaining to our overcoming error and our putting on Christ (man of victory).
