New Living Translation (NLT) New International Version (NIV)
13 That same day two of Jesus' followers were walking to the village of Emmaus, seven miles out of Jerusalem. 13 Now that same day two of them were going to a village called Emmaus, about seven miles from Jerusalem.
14 As they walked along they were talking about everything that had happened. 14 They were talking with each other about everything that had happened.
15 Suddenly, Jesus himself came along and joined them and began walking beside them. 15 As they talked and discussed these things with each other, Jesus himself came up and walked along with them;
16 But they didn't know who he was, because God kept them from recognizing him. 16 but they were kept from recognizing him.
17 "You seem to be in a deep discussion about something," he said. "What are you so concerned about?" They stopped short, sadness written across their faces. 17 He asked them, "What are you discussing together as you walk along?" They stood still, their faces downcast.
18 Then one of them, Cleopas, replied, "You must be the only person in Jerusalem who hasn't heard about all the things that have happened there the last few days." 18 One of them, named Cleopas, asked him, "Are you only a visitor to Jerusalem and do not know the things that have happened there in these days?"
19 "What things?" Jesus asked. "The things that happened to Jesus, the man from Nazareth," they said. "He was a prophet who did wonderful miracles. He was a mighty teacher, highly regarded by both God and all the people. 19 "What things?" he asked. "About Jesus of Nazareth," they replied. "He was a prophet, powerful in word and deed before God and all the people.
20 But our leading priests and other religious leaders arrested him and handed him over to be condemned to death, and they crucified him. 20 The chief priests and our rulers handed him over to be sentenced to death, and they crucified him;
21 We had thought he was the Messiah who had come to rescue Israel. That all happened three days ago. 21 but we had hoped that he was the one who was going to redeem Israel. And what is more, it is the third day since all this took place.
22 Then some women from our group of his followers were at his tomb early this morning, and they came back with an amazing report. 22 In addition, some of our women amazed us. They went to the tomb early this morning
23 They said his body was missing, and they had seen angels who told them Jesus is alive! 23 but didn't find his body. They came and told us that they had seen a vision of angels, who said he was alive.
24 Some of our men ran out to see, and sure enough, Jesus' body was gone, just as the women had said." 24 Then some of our companions went to the tomb and found it just as the women had said, but him they did not see."
25 Then Jesus said to them, "You are such foolish people! You find it so hard to believe all that the prophets wrote in the Scriptures. 25 He said to them, "How foolish you are, and how slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken!
26 Wasn't it clearly predicted by the prophets that the Messiah would have to suffer all these things before entering his time of glory?" 26 Did not the Christ have to suffer these things and then enter his glory?"
27 Then Jesus quoted passages from the writings of Moses and all the prophets, explaining what all the Scriptures said about himself. 27 And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he explained to them what was said in all the Scriptures concerning himself.
28 By this time they were nearing Emmaus and the end of their journey. Jesus would have gone on, 28 As they approached the village to which they were going, Jesus acted as if he were going farther.
29 but they begged him to stay the night with them, since it was getting late. So he went home with them. 29 But they urged him strongly, "Stay with us, for it is nearly evening; the day is almost over." So he went in to stay with them.
30 As they sat down to eat, he took a small loaf of bread, asked God's blessing on it, broke it, then gave it to them. 30 When he was at the table with them, he took bread, gave thanks, broke it and began to give it to them.
31 Suddenly, their eyes were opened, and they recognized him. And at that moment he disappeared! 31 Then their eyes were opened and they recognized him, and he disappeared from their sight.
32 They said to each other, "Didn't our hearts feel strangely warm as he talked with us on the road and explained the Scriptures to us?" 32 They asked each other, "Were not our hearts burning within us while he talked with us on the road and opened the Scriptures to us?"
33 And within the hour they were on their way back to Jerusalem, where the eleven disciples and the other followers of Jesus were gathered. When they arrived, they were greeted with the report, 33 They got up and returned at once to Jerusalem. There they found the Eleven and those with them, assembled together
34 "The Lord has really risen! He appeared to Peter!" 34 and saying, "It is true! The Lord has risen and has appeared to Simon."
35 Then the two from Emmaus told their story of how Jesus had appeared to them as they were walking along the road and how they had recognized him as he was breaking the bread. 35 Then the two told what had happened on the way, and how Jesus was recognized by them when he broke the bread.
