ContextThe Road to Emmaus
13And, behold, two of them went that same day to a village called Emmaus, which was from Jerusalem about three score furlongs. 14And they talked together of all these things which had happened. 15And it came to pass, that, while they communed together and reasoned, Jesus himself drew near, and went with them. 16But their eyes were held that they should not know him. 17And he said to them, What manner of communications are these that you have one to another, as you walk, and are sad? 18And the one of them, whose name was Cleopas, answering said to him, Are you only a stranger in Jerusalem, and have not known the things which are come to pass there in these days? 19And he said to them, What things? And they said to him, Concerning Jesus of Nazareth, which was a prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people: 20And how the chief priests and our rulers delivered him to be condemned to death, and have crucified him. 21But we trusted that it had been he which should have redeemed Israel: and beside all this, to day is the third day since these things were done. 22Yes, and certain women also of our company made us astonished, which were early at the sepulcher; 23And when they found not his body, they came, saying, that they had also seen a vision of angels, which said that he was alive. 24And certain of them which were with us went to the sepulcher, and found it even so as the women had said: but him they saw not.
