One of them, named Cleopas,2 asked him, "Are you only a visitor to Jerusalem and do not know the things that have happened there in these days?"
19"What things?" he asked. "About Jesus of Nazareth,"3 they replied. "He was a prophet,4 powerful in word and deed before God and all the people.

When he was at the table with them, he took bread, gave thanks, broke it14 and began to give it to them.
Then their eyes were opened and they recognized him,15 and he disappeared from their sight.
