27 Then beginning [a]with (A)Moses and [b]with all the (B)Prophets, He explained to them the things written about Himself in all the Scriptures.

28 And they approached the village where they were going, and (C)He gave the impression that He was going farther. 29 And so they strongly urged Him, saying, “Stay with us, for it is getting toward evening, and the day [c]is now nearly over.” So He went in to stay with them. 30 And it came about, when He had reclined at the table with them, that He took the bread and (D)blessed it, and He broke it and began giving it to them. 31 And then their (E)eyes were opened and they recognized Him; and He vanished from [d]their sight. 32 They said to one another, “[e]Were our hearts not burning within us when He was speaking to us on the road, while He (F)was [f]explaining the Scriptures to us?” 33 And they got up that very hour and returned to Jerusalem, and (G)found the eleven gathered together and (H)those who were with them, 34 saying, “(I)The Lord has really risen and (J)has appeared to Simon!” 35 They began to relate [g]their experiences on the road, and how (K)He was recognized by them at the breaking of the bread.

Other Appearances

36 Now while they were telling these things, (L)Jesus Himself suddenly stood in their midst and *said to them, “Peace be to you.” 37 But they were startled and frightened, and thought that they were looking at (M)a spirit. 38 And He said to them, “Why are you frightened, and why are doubts arising in your [h]hearts? 39 (N)See My hands and My feet, that [i]it is I Myself; (O)touch Me and see, because a spirit does not have flesh and bones as you plainly see that I have.” 40 And when He had said this, He showed them His hands and His feet. 41 While they still [j](P)could not believe it because of their joy and astonishment, He said to them, (Q)Have you anything here to eat?” 42 They served Him a piece of broiled fish; 43 and He took it and (R)ate it in front of them.

44 Now He said to them, (S)These are My words which I spoke to you while I was still with you, that all the things that are written about Me in the (T)Law of Moses and the Prophets and (U)the Psalms must be fulfilled.”
