Luke 24:13-35 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)

13 And behold, two of them were going that same day to a village called Emmaus, which was from Jerusalem about seven miles.

14 And they talked together of all these things which had happened.

15 And it came to pass that while they communed and reasoned together, Jesus Himself drew near and went with them.

16 But their eyes were held, that they should not know Him.

17 And He said unto them, “What manner of communications are these that ye have one to another as ye walk and are sad?”

18 And one of them, whose name was Cleopas, answering said unto Him, “Art thou only a stranger in Jerusalem, and hast not known the things which have come to pass there in these days?”

19 And He said unto them, “What things?” And they said unto Him, “Concerning Jesus of Nazareth, who was a prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people;

20 and how the chief priests and our rulers delivered Him to be condemned to death and have crucified Him.

21 But we trusted that it had been He who should have redeemed Israel. And besides all this, today is the third day since these things were done.

22 Yea, and certain women also of our company, who were early at the sepulcher, made us astonished.

23 And when they found not His body, they came saying that they had also seen a vision of angels, who said that He was alive.

24 And certain of those who were with us went to the sepulcher and found it even so as the women had said, but Him they saw not.”

25 Then He said unto them, “O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken!

26 Ought not Christ to have suffered these things and to enter into His glory?”

27 And beginning with Moses and all the prophets, He expounded unto them in all the Scriptures the things concerning Himself.

28 And they drew nigh unto the village whither they were going, and He made as though He would have gone further.

29 But they constrained Him, saying, “Abide with us, for it is toward evening and the day is far spent.” And He went in to tarry with them.

30 And it came to pass, as He sat at meat with them, He took bread and blessed it, and broke and gave it to them.

31 And their eyes were opened and they knew Him. And He vanished out of their sight.

32 And they said to one another, “Did not our hearts burn within us while He talked with us on the way and while He opened to us the Scriptures?”

33 And they rose up that same hour and returned to Jerusalem, and found the eleven gathered together and those who were with them,

34 saying, “The Lord is risen indeed and hath appeared to Simon!”

35 And they told what things were done on the way, and how He was known to them in the breaking of bread.

Luke 24:13-35 New International Version (NIV)

On the Road to Emmaus

13 Now that same day two of them were going to a village called Emmaus, about seven miles[a] from Jerusalem. 14 They were talking with each other about everything that had happened. 15 As they talked and discussed these things with each other, Jesus himself came up and walked along with them; 16 but they were kept from recognizing him.

17 He asked them, “What are you discussing together as you walk along?”

They stood still, their faces downcast. 18 One of them, named Cleopas, asked him, “Are you the only one visiting Jerusalem who does not know the things that have happened there in these days?”

19 “What things?” he asked.

“About Jesus of Nazareth,” they replied. “He was a prophet, powerful in word and deed before God and all the people. 20 The chief priests and our rulers handed him over to be sentenced to death, and they crucified him; 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. 22 In addition, some of our women amazed us. They went to the tomb early this morning 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 Then some of our companions went to the tomb and found it just as the women had said, but they did not see Jesus.”

25 He said to them, “How foolish you are, and how slow to believe all that the prophets have spoken! 26 Did not the Messiah have to suffer these things and then enter his glory?” 27 And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he explained to them what was said in all the Scriptures concerning himself.

28 As they approached the village to which they were going, Jesus continued on as if he were going farther. 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.

30 When he was at the table with them, he took bread, gave thanks, broke it and began to give it to them. 31 Then their eyes were opened and they recognized him, and he disappeared from their sight. 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?”

33 They got up and returned at once to Jerusalem. There they found the Eleven and those with them, assembled together 34 and saying, “It is true! The Lord has risen and has appeared to Simon.” 35 Then the two told what had happened on the way, and how Jesus was recognized by them when he broke the bread.
