13 Now on that same day two of them were going to a village called Emmaus, about seven miles* from Jerusalem, 14and talking with each other about all these things that had happened. 15While they were talking and discussing, Jesus himself came near and went with them, 16but their eyes were kept from recognizing him.
28 As they came near the village to which they were going, he walked ahead as if he were going on. 29But they urged him strongly, saying, Stay with us, because it is almost evening and the day is now nearly over. So he went in to stay with them. 30When he was at the table with them, he took bread, blessed and broke it, and gave it to them. 31Then their eyes were opened, and they recognized him; and he vanished from their sight. 32They said to each other, Were not our hearts burning within us* while he was talking to us on the road, while he was opening the scriptures to us? 33That same hour they got up and returned to Jerusalem; and they found the eleven and their companions gathered together. 34They were saying, The Lord has risen indeed, and he has appeared to Simon! 35Then they told what had happened on the road, and how he had been made known to them in the breaking of the bread.
