Luke 24:13-49

The Road to Emmaus

13 And behold, 1two of them were going that very day to a village named Emmaus, which was about seven miles from Jerusalem.
14 And they were talking with each other about all these things which had taken place.
15 While they were talking and discussing, Jesus Himself approached and began traveling with them.
16 But 2their eyes were prevented from recognizing Him.
17 And He said to them, "What are these words that you are exchanging with one another as you are walking?" And they stood still, looking sad.
18 One of them, named Cleopas, answered and said to Him, "Are You the only one visiting Jerusalem and unaware * of the things which have happened here * in these days?"
19 And He said to them, "What things?" And they said to Him, "The things about 3Jesus the Nazarene, who was a 4prophet mighty in deed and word in the sight of God and all the people,
20 and how the chief priests and our 5rulers delivered Him to the sentence of death, and crucified Him.
21 "But we were hoping that it was He who was going to 6redeem Israel. Indeed, besides * all this, it is the third day since * these things happened.
22 "But also some women among us amazed us. 7When they were at the tomb early in the morning,
23 and did not find His body, they came, saying that they had also seen a vision of angels who said that He was alive.
24 "Some of those who were with us went to the tomb and found it just exactly as the women also had said; but Him they did not see."
25 And He said to them, "O foolish men and slow of heart to believe in all that 8the prophets have spoken!
26 "9Was it not necessary for the Christ to suffer these things and to enter into His glory?"
27 Then beginning with 10Moses and with all the 11prophets, He explained to them the things concerning Himself in all the Scriptures.
28 And they approached the village where they were going, and 12He 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 is 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 13blessed it, and breaking it, He began giving it to them.
31 Then their 14eyes were opened and they recognized Him; and He vanished from their sight.
32 They said to one another, "Were not our hearts burning within us while He was speaking to us on the road, while He 15was explaining the Scriptures to us?"
33 And they got up that very hour and returned to Jerusalem, and 16found gathered together the eleven and 17those who were with them,
34 saying, "18The Lord has really risen and 19has appeared to Simon."
35 They began to relate their experiences on the road and how 20He was recognized by them in the breaking of the bread.

Other Appearances

36 While they were telling these things, 21He Himself stood in their midst and said to them, "Peace be to you."
37 But they were startled and frightened and thought that they were seeing 22a spirit.
38 And He said to them, "Why are you troubled, and why * do doubts arise in your hearts?
39 "23See My hands and My feet, that it is I Myself; 24touch Me and see, for a spirit does not have flesh and bones as you see that I have."
40 And when He had said this, He showed them His hands and His feet.
41 While they still 25could not believe it because of their joy and amazement, He said to them, "26Have you anything here to eat?"
42 They gave Him a piece of a broiled fish;
43 and He took it and 27ate it before them.
44 Now He said to them, "28These are My words which I spoke to you while I was still with you, that all things which are written about Me in the 29Law of Moses and the Prophets and 30the Psalms must be fulfilled."
45 Then He 31opened their minds to understand the Scriptures,
46 and He said to them, "32Thus it is written, that the Christ would suffer and 33rise again from the dead the third day,
47 and that 34repentance for forgiveness of sins would be proclaimed in His name to 35all the nations, beginning from Jerusalem.
48 "You are 36witnesses of these things.
49 "And behold, 37I am sending forth the promise of My Father upon you; but 38you are to stay in the city until you are clothed with power from on high."
