Cleopas [EBD]

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

Cleopas [NAVE]

CLEOPAS, a disciple to whom Jesus appeared after his resurrection, Luke 24:18.

CLEOPAS [SMITH]

(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) 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.

CLEOPAS [ISBE]

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

See also ALPHAEUS; CLOPAS.
