Cleopas

Cleopas [N] [S]

(abbreviation of Cleopatros), one of the two disciples with whom Jesus conversed on the way to Emmaus on the day of the resurrection ( Luke 24:18 ). We know nothing definitely regarding him. It is not certain that he was the Clopas of John 19:25 , or the Alphaeus of Matthew 10:3 , although he may have been so.
