And behold, 1two of them were going that veryday to a villagenamedEmmaus, which was aabout sevenmiles from Jerusalem.
And they were talking with eachotheraboutallthesethings which had takenplace.
15While they were talking and discussing, JesusHimselfapproached and began traveling with them.
But 2their eyes were prevented from recognizing Him.
And He said to them, "What are thesewords that you are exchanging with oneanother as you are walking?" And they stoodstill, lookingsad.
18One of them, namedCleopas, answered and said to Him, "Are You bthe onlyonevisitingJerusalem and unaware of the things which have happenedhere in thesedays?"
And He said to them, "Whatthings?" And they said to Him, "The things about3Jesus the Nazarene, who was a 4prophetmighty in deed and word in the sight of God and all the people,
and how the chiefpriests and our 5rulersdelivered Him to the sentence of death, and crucified Him.
"But we were hoping that it was He who was going to 6redeemIsrael. Indeed, besidesallthis, it is the thirddaysincethesethingshappened.
"But alsosomewomenamong us amazed us. 7When they were at the tombearly in the morning,
and did not find His body, they came, saying that they had alsoseen a vision of angelswhosaid that He was alive.
24"Some of those who were with us went to the tomb and found it justexactly as the womenalso had said; but Him they did not see."
And He said to them, "Ofoolishmen and slow of heart to believe in all that 8the prophets have spoken!26"9Was it not necessary for the cChrist to sufferthesethings and to enter into His glory?"27Thenbeginningdwith 10Moses and ewith all the 11prophets, He explained to them the things concerningHimself in all the Scriptures.
And they approached the villagewhere they were going, and 12He acted as though He were goingfarther.
But they urged Him, saying, "Stay with us, for it is getting towardevening, and the dayfis nownearlyover." So He went in to stay with them.
30When He had reclined at the table with them, He took the bread and 13blessed it, and breaking it, He began giving it to them.
31Then their 14eyes were opened and they recognized Him; and He vanished from gtheir sight.
They said to oneanother, "hWere not our heartsburningwithin us while He was speaking to us on the road, while He 15was iexplaining the Scriptures to us?"
And they got up that veryhour and returned to Jerusalem, and 16foundgatheredtogether the eleven and 17thosewho were with them,
34saying, "18The Lord has reallyrisen and 19has appeared to Simon."
They began to relatejtheir experiences on the road and how20He was recognized by them in the breaking of the bread.
