Luke 24:13

Context
Jesus Walks the Road to Emmaus

24:13 Now 1  that very day two of them 2  were on their way to a village called Emmaus, about seven miles 3  from Jerusalem. 4 

1 tn Grk “And behold.” Here καί (kai) has been translated as “now” to indicate the transition to a new topic. The Greek word ἰδού (idou) at the beginning of this statement has not been translated because it has no exact English equivalent here, but adds interest and emphasis (BDAG 468 s.v. 1).

2 tn These are disciples as they know about the empty tomb and do not know what to make of it all.

3 tn Grk “sixty stades” or about 11 kilometers. A stade (στάδιον, stadion) was a unit of distance about 607 feet (187 meters) long.
