View In My Bible
26 "1Was it not necessary for the aChrist to suffer these things and to enter into His glory?" 27 Then beginning bwith 2Moses and cwith all the 3prophets, He explained to them the things concerning Himself in all the Scriptures. 28 And they approached the village where they were going, and 4He acted as though He were going farther. 29 But they urged Him, saying, "Stay with us, for it is getting toward evening, and the day dis now nearly over." So He went in to stay with them. 30 When He had reclined at the table with them, He took the bread and 5blessed it, and breaking it, He began giving it to them. 31 Then their 6eyes were opened and they recognized Him; and He vanished from etheir sight. 32 They said to one another, "fWere not our hearts burning within us while He was speaking to us on the road, while He 7was gexplaining the Scriptures to us?" 33 And they got up that very hour and returned to Jerusalem, and 8found gathered together the eleven and 9those who were with them, 34 saying, "10The Lord has really risen and 11has appeared to Simon." 35 They began to relate htheir experiences on the road and how 12He was recognized by them in the breaking of the bread.
