24:14 They were talking with each other about everything that had happened.
24:15 As they talked and discussed these things with each other, Jesus himself came up and walked along with them;
24:16 but they were kept from recognizing him.
24:17 He asked them, "What are you discussing together as you walk along?"
24:18 They stood still, their faces downcast. 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?"
24:19 "What things?" he asked.
24:20 "About Jesus of Nazareth," they replied. "He was a prophet, powerful in word and deed before God and all the people. The chief priests and our rulers handed him over to be sentenced to death, and they crucified him;
24:21 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.
24:22 In addition, some of our women amazed us. They went to the tomb early this morning
24:23 but didn't find his body. They came and told us that they had seen a vision of angels, who said he was alive.
24:24 Then some of our companions went to the tomb and found it just as the women had said, but him they did not see."
24:25 He said to them, "How foolish you are, and how slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken!
24:26 Did not the Christ have to suffer these things and then enter his glory?"
24:27 And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he explained to them what was said in all the Scriptures concerning himself.
24:28 As they approached the village to which they were going, Jesus acted as if he were going farther.
24:29 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.
24:30 When he was at the table with them, he took bread, gave thanks, broke it and began to give it to them.
24:31 Then their eyes were opened and they recognized him, and he disappeared from their sight.
24:32 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?"
24:33 They got up and returned at once to Jerusalem. There they found the Eleven and those with them, assembled together
24:34 and saying, "It is true! The Lord has risen and has appeared to Simon."
24:35 Then the two told what had happened on the way, and how Jesus was recognized by them when he broke the bread.
