ANDRONICUS (an druh ni' cuhss) An apostle and thus probably an eyewitness of the risen Christ. Paul greeted this Jewish Christian as one honored by the church, one who had suffered in prison for his faith, and one who had been a Christian longer than Paul (Romans 16:7). Evidently he lived in Rome when Paul wrote Romans. See Apostles.
