Man'ain (Μαναήν, prob. i.q. MENAHEM; comp. Μανάημος, Josephus, Ant. 9:11,1), a Christian teacher at Antioch, who had been educated with Herod Antipas (Ac 13:1; see Kuinol, ad loc.). A.D. 44. He was evidently a Jew, but nothing else is known of him beyond this passage, in which the epithet σύντροφος may mean either playmate (Herod was brought up, however, at Rome, Josephus, Ant. 17:1, 3) or foster-brother, as having the same nurse (see Walch, Dissert. ad Act. p. 234). Some identify him with the person above named by Josephus, others with a Menahem mentioned in the Talmud (see Lightfoot, Harm. of N. Test. ad loc.), but in either case on very slender grounds.
