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.

Cleopas [N] [E]

(of a renowned father ), one of the two disciples who were going to Emmaus on the day of the resurrection. ( Luke 24:18 ) Some think the same as Cleophas in ( John 19:25 ) But they are probably two different persons. Cleopas is a Greek name, contracted from Cleopater, while Cleophas, or Clopas as in the Revised Version, is an Aramaic name, the same as Alphaeus.
