Then he began with Moses' Teachings and the Prophets to explain to them what was said about him throughout the Scriptures.
When they came near the village where they were going, Jesus acted as if he were going farther.
They urged him, "Stay with us! It's getting late, and the day is almost over." So he went to stay with them.
While he was at the table with them, he took bread and blessed it. He broke the bread and gave it to them.
Then their eyes were opened, and they recognized him. But he vanished from their sight.
They said to each other, "Weren't we excited when he talked with us on the road and opened up the meaning of the Scriptures for us?"
That same hour they went back to Jerusalem. They found the eleven apostles and those who were with them gathered together.
They were saying, "The Lord has really come back to life and has appeared to Simon."
Then the two disciples told what had happened on the road and how they had recognized Jesus when he broke the bread.
While they were talking about what had happened, Jesus stood among them. He said to them, "Peace be with you!"
They were terrified, and thought they were seeing a ghost.
