As they approached the village to which they were going, Jesus acted as if he were going farther.
But they urged him strongly, "Stay with us, for it is nearly evening; the day is almost over." So he went in to stay with them.
When he was at the table with them, he took bread, gave thanks, broke it1 and began to give it to them.
Then their eyes were opened and they recognized him,2 and he disappeared from their sight.
They asked each other, "Were not our hearts burning within us3 while he talked with us on the road and opened the Scriptures4 to us?"
They got up and returned at once to Jerusalem. There they found the Eleven and those with them, assembled together
and saying, "It is true! The Lord 5 has risen and has appeared to Simon."635
Then the two told what had happened on the way, and how Jesus was recognized by them when he broke the bread.7
