Julia

Julia (Joo´lee-uh)

A woman to whom Paul sends greetings in (Rom 16:15). Philologus, mentioned first in the verse, is perhaps her husband, and “Nereus and his sister” are possibly their children. “All the saints who are with them” may have formed a house-church in their home.

Rom 16:15

15Greet Philologus, Julia, Nereus and his sister, and Olympas, and all the saints who are with them.
