XLV. Appearance on the Way to Emmaus
173. The Walk with Cleopas and His Brother
13That very day two men were going to a village named Emmaus, about seven miles from Jerusalem,
14and talking with each other about all these things that had happened.
15While they were talking and discussing together, Jesus himself drew near and went with them.
16But their eyes were kept from recognizing him.
17And he said to them, “What is this conversation which you are holding with each other as you walk?”
And they stood still, looking sad. 18Then one of them, named Cleopas, answered him, “Are you the only visitor to Jerusalem who does not know the things that have happened there in these days?”
19And he said to them, “What things?”
And they said to him, “Concerning Jesus of Nazareth, who was a prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people. 20 Our chief priests and rulers delivered him up to be condemned to death, and crucified him. 21But we had hoped that he was the one to redeem Israel. Yes, and besides all this, it is now the third day since this happened. 22Moreover, some women of our company amazed us. They were at the tomb early this morning 23and did not find his body. 24Some of those who were with us went to the tomb, and found it just as the women had said, but they did not see Jesus.”
