Mnason

Mna'son (Μυάσων, perh. reminding), a Christian with whom Paul lodged during his last visit at Jerusalem (Ac 21:16). A.D. 55. He seems to have been a native of Cyprus, but an inhabitant of Jerusalem, like Barnabas (comp. Ac 11:19-20). He was well known to the Christians at Casarea, and may have been a friend of Barnabas (Ac 4:36), but appears not to have been before this acquainted with Paul. Some think that he was converted by Paul and Barnabas while at Cyprus (Ac 13:9); but the designation "an old disciple" (ἀρχαῖος μαθητής) has more generally induced the conclusion that he was converted by Jesus himself, and was perhaps one of the seventy (see Kuinbl, Comment. ad loc.).
