Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Acts 21:15-16.


Acts 21:16

_ _ went with us ... and brought with them — rather, “brought us to.”

_ _ One Mnason of Cyprus, an old disciple, etc. — not an “aged” disciple, but probably “a disciple of old standing,” perhaps one of the three thousand converted on the day of Pentecost, or, more likely still, drawn to the Savior Himself during His lifetime. He had come, probably, with the other Cyprians (Acts 11:20), to Antioch, “preaching the Lord Jesus unto the Grecians,” and now he appears settled at Jerusalem.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Acts 21:15-26.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Acts 21:16

The disciples brought us to one Mnason, a Cyprian, an old disciple — He was a native of Cyprus, but an inhabitant of Jerusalem, and probably one of the first converts there.
