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
While they were still talking about this, Jesus himself stood among them and said to them, "Peace be with you."837
They were startled and frightened, thinking they saw a ghost.938
He said to them, "Why are you troubled, and why do doubts rise in your minds?39Look at my hands and my feet. It is I myself ! Touch me and see;10 a ghost does not have flesh and bones, as you see I have."40
When he had said this, he showed them his hands and feet.
And while they still did not believe it because of joy and amazement, he asked them, "Do you have anything here to eat?"42
They gave him a piece of broiled fish,
and he took it and ate it in their presence.11
