Super-apostles (2 Cor. 11:5)

“I think

That I am not

In the least inferior

To these super-apostles.”

λογίζομαι γὰρ μηδὲν ὑστερηκέναι τῶν ὑπερλίαν ἀποστόλων.

Paul said, “I think (λογίζομαι) that I am not in the least inferior (γὰρ μηδὲν ὑστερηκέναι) to these super-apostles (τῶν ὑπερλίαν ἀποστόλων).”  Paul then got a little sarcastic.  He maintained that he was not inferior to these so-called “super-apostles”.  Paul wanted to make it clear that he did not think that he was inferior in any way to these self-proclaimed great superior super apostles.  If anything, Paul looked down on them as false apostles.  Do you have friends who think that they are extra special?
