Cleopas


Cle’opas (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 Alphæus.
