katapi HOME The Appearance to Two Disciples - Mk16.12-13  Lk.24.13-35       | NEB Books | notes

Mark: 16
12Later he appeared in a different guise to two of them as they were walking, on their way into the country. 13These also went and took the news to the others, but again no one believed them.

Luke: 24
13THAT SAME DAY two of them were on their way to a village called Emmaus, which lay about seven miles from Jerusalem, 14and they were talking together about all these happenings. 15As they talked and discussed it with one another, Jesus himself came up and walked along with them; 16but something kept them from seeing who it was. 17He asked them, 'What is it you are debating as you walk?' They halted, their faces full of gloom, 18and one, called Cleopas, answered, 'Are you the only person staying in Jerusalem not to know [Or: Have you been staying by yourself in Jerusalem, that you do not know ...] what has happened there in the last few days?' 19'What do you mean?' he said. 'All this about Jesus of Nazareth,' they replied, 'a prophet powerful in speech and action before God and the whole people; 20how our chief priests and rulers handed him over to be sentenced to death, and crucified him. 21But we had been hoping that he was the man to liberate Israel. What is more, this is the third day since it happened, 22and now some women of our company have astounded us: they went early to the tomb, 23but failed to find his body, and returned with a story that they had seen a vision of angels who told them he was alive. 24So some of our people went to the tomb and found things just as the women had said; but him they did not see.'
25'How dull you are!' he answered. 'How slow to believe all that the prophets said! 26Was the Messiah not bound to suffer thus before entering upon his glory?' 27Then he began with Moses and all the prophets, and explained to them the passages which referred to himself in every part of the scriptures.
28By this time they had reached the village to which they were going, and he made as if to continue his journey, 29but they pressed him: 'Stay with us, for evening draws on, and the day is almost over.' So he went in to stay with them. 30And when he had sat down with them at table, he took bread and said the blessing; he broke the bread, and offered it to them. 31Then their eyes were opened, and they recognized him; and he vanished from their sight. 32They said to one another, 'Did we not feel our hearts on fire as he talked with us on the road and explained the scriptures to us?'
33Without a moment's delay they set out and returned to Jerusalem. There they found that the Eleven and the rest of the company had assembled, 34and were saying, 'It is true: the Lord has risen; he has appeared to Simon.' 35Then they gave their account of the events of their journey and told how he had been recognized by them at the breaking of the bread.

Notes: The most generally known harmonies of the Gospels are based upon the Huck-Lietzmann Synopsis (1936) of the three gospels and Sparks' Synopsis (1964) of four gospels. Many of the passages in these harmonies are too short to display in a useful manner on a web-page.
The katapi New Study Bible Synopsis of the Gospels is based upon the headings displayed in the New Study Bible reference table which in turn follows the headings printed in the United Bible Societies' New Testament in Greek. These sections are more useful for bible study. Columns are arranged so that the first column is your chosen heading from the bible passage list (highlighted). The harmonies that follow across the web-page are then in the normally accepted order.
For Old Testament references quoted by New Testament authors, you should either go back to the passage listing web-page and select the link on the 'version' column; or click on the column heading and search through the chapter for the relevant passage; than select the OT passage from the reference column.
