Jesus Appears to Two
Interwoven Gospels

Then, after these things, Jesus was manifested in another form to two of His disciples, as they walked, on their way into the country. Now behold, two of them were going on that very day to a village named Emmaus, about sixty furlongs from Jerusalem. And they were conversing with each other about all these things that had taken place. And it came to pass as they were conversing and reasoning together, that Jesus Himself drew near and went with them. But somehow they did not recognize Jesus. And He said to them, "What matters are these that ye are discussing with one another as ye walk?" And they stood still, looking sad. Then one of them named Cleopas, answering, said to Him, "Dost Thou sojourn alone in Jerusalem, and dost not know the things which have come to pass there in these days?" And He said to them, "What things?" And they said to Him, "The things concerning Jesus the Nazarene, Who was a prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people; and how the chief priests and all our rulers delivered Him up to condemnation to death, and crucified Him. But we were hoping that it was He Who was about to redeem Israel. "Yea indeed, besides all these things, it is now the third day since these things came to pass. Yea also certain women of our company astonished us. Having gone early to the tomb, and not finding His body, they came saying that they had also seen a vision of angels, who said that He is alive. And some of those with us went to the tomb and found it even so as the women said; but they did not see Him."

And He said to them, "O foolish ones, and slow of heart to believe in all that the prophets spake! Was it not necessary for the Christ to suffer these things and to enter into His glory?" And beginning with Moses and with all the prophets, He explained to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning Himself. And they drew near to the village whither they were going; and He made as if He were going further.

And they constrained Him, saying, "Abide with us; for it is towards the evening, and the day has already declined." And He went in to abide with them. And it came to pass, as He reclined at table with them, He took the bread and blessed it and broke it, and gave to them. Then their eyes were opened and they knew Him; and He disappeared from them. And they said one to another, "Was not our heart burning in us as He was speaking to us in the way, as He was opening the Scriptures to us?"

And rising up in that very hour, they returned to Jerusalem. And they found the eleven and those with them assembled, saying, "The Lord is risen indeed, and hath appeared to Simon." And they told them the things that took place in the way, and how He was known to them in their breaking of the bread: but they did not believe them.
