Easton's Bible Dictionary


(abbreviation of Cleopatros), one of the two disciples with whom Jesus conversed on the way to Emmaus on the day of the resurrection (Luk 24:18). We know nothing definitely regarding him. It is not certain that he was the Clopas of Jhn 19:25, or the Alphaeus of Mat 10:3, although he may have been so.

International Standard Bible Encyclopaedia


kle'-o-pas (Kleopas, "renowned father"): One of the two disciples whom Jesus met on the way to Emmaus (Lu 24:18). The name is a contraction of Cleopatros, not identical with Clopas of Joh 19:25.



Smith's Bible Dictionary


(of a renowned father) one of the two disciples who were going to Emmaus on the day of the resurrection (Luke 24:18). Some think the same as CLEOPHAS in John 19:25. SEE [CLEOPHAS]. But they are probably two different persons. Cleopas is a Greek name, contracted from Cleopater, while Cleophas, or Clopas as in the Revised Version, is an Aramaic name, the same as Alphaeus. SEE [ALPHAEUS].


The Blue Letter Bible ministry and the BLB Institute hold to the historical, conservative Christian faith, which includes a firm belief in the inerrancy of Scripture. Since the text and audio content provided by BLB represent a range of evangelical traditions, all of the ideas and principles conveyed in the resource materials are not necessarily affirmed, in total, by this ministry.
