Chapter Overview
 
1Christ's resurrection is declared by two angels to the women that come to the sepulchre.
9These report it to others.

36afterwards he appears to the apostles, and reproves their unbelief;
47gives them a charge;
49promises the Holy Ghost;
50and so ascends into heaven.

Verse 13
And, behold, two of them went that same day to a village called Emmaus, which was from Jerusalem about threescore furlongs.
two
18; Mark 16:12,13
Emmaus
Emmaus was situated, according to the testimony both of Luke and Josephus, sixty furlongs from Jerusalem, that is, about seven miles and a half. It has generally been confounded with Emmaus, a city of Judah, afterwards called Nicopolis; but Reland has satisfactorily shown that they were distinct places; the latter, according to the old Itinerary of Palestine, being situated 10 miles from Lydda, and 22 miles from Jerusalem. D'Arvieux states, that going from Jerusalem to Rama, he took the right from the high road to Rama, at some little distance from Jerusalem, and "travelled a good league over rocks and flint stones, to the end of the valley of terebinthine trees," until he reached Emmaus; which "seems, by the ruins which surround it, to have been formerly larger that it was in our Saviour's time. The Christians, while masters of the Holy Land, re-established it a little, and built several churches. Emmaus was not worth the trouble of having come out of the way to see it."

Verse 14
And they talked together of all these things which had happened.
6:45; Deuteronomy 6:7; Malachi 3:6

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

Verse 18
And the 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 are come to pass there in these days?
Cleopas
John 19:25

Verse 19
And he said unto them, What things? And they said unto him, Concerning Jesus of Nazareth, which was a prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people:
Concerning
7:16; Matthew 21:11; John 3:2; 4:19; 6:14; 7:40-42,52; Acts 2:22; 10:38
mighty

Verse 24
And certain of them which were with us went to the sepulchre, and found it even so as the women had said: but him they saw not.
went
12; John 20:1-10

Verse 25
Then he said unto them, O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken:
O fools
Rather, inconsiderate men, [anoetos (a)no/htov)] justly termed such, because they had not attended to the description of the Messiah by the prophets, nor to His teaching and miracles, as proofs that He alone was the person described.
Mark 7:18; 8:17,18; 9:19; 16:14; Hebrews 5:11,12

Verse 26

That is, he was directing his steps as if to go onwards; and so he doubtless would, had he not been withheld by their friendly importunities. There is not the smallest ground for founding a charge of dissimulation against our Saviour, or affording any encouragement to dissimulation in others.

Saying
From Mr 16:13, we learn that the apostles did not believe the testimony even of the two disciples from Emmaus, while it is here asserted they were saying, when they entered the room, "The Lord is risen" etc. This difficulty is removed by rendering interrogatively, "Has the Lord risen," etc?
