Neaniskos (νεανίσκος) is the Classical Greek word for "young man." It appears a total of eleven times in five of the books of the Greek New Testament:

It also appears in the controversial document known as the Secret Gospel of Mark. Some scholars proposed that the occurrences of this word in Mk 14:51, Mk 16:5 and Secret Mark are somehow related. One suggestion[who?] is that the account of Secret Mark was created by combining the passages of Matthew, Mark and Luke in which the word neaniskos appears.
