reminding, or remembrancer, a Christian of Jerusalem with whom Paul lodged (Acts 21:16). He was apparently a native of Cyprus, like Barnabas (11:19, 20), and was well known to the Christians of Caesarea (4:36). He was an "old disciple" (R.V., "early disciple"), i.e., he had become a Christian in the beginning of the formation of the Church in Jerusalem.
A certain mnason, his countryman, was converted about the same time.
On the other hand, you should have seen that perfect gentleman, Mr. mnason.
Their next host was one Mr. mnason, a Cyprusian by nation, and an old disciple.
Then Mr. mnason stamped with his foot, and his daughter Grace came up.
mnason appears to be the translation of some Hebrew name from the root zacar, as Zacharius.
Then said mnason, their host, "How far have ye come to-day?"
That verse refers perhaps to the reception of Paul merely in a little group at the house of mnason.
