Acts 21:16 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Bringing with them, etc

This would imply that Mnason was at Caesarea, and accompanied Paul and his companions to Jerusalem. It seems better to suppose that the disciples accompanied the apostle in order to introduce him to Mnason, whom they knew. Render, conducting us to Mnason, with whom we should lodge.

Old (ἀρχαίῳ)

Better, as Rev., early. The rendering old might be taken to mean aged; whereas the word means of long standing.
