Bible Names A-G: Cleopas


Cleopas in 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 (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 in Fausset's Bible Dictionary One of the two disciples who walked to Emmaus on the day of Christ's resurrection, and unconsciously spoke with Him (Luke 24:18). Identified by some with Alphaeus or Clopas or Cleophas (John 19:25). (See ALPHAEUS.) But Alphaeus or Clopas is an Aramaic name; whereas Cleopas is a Greek name, contracted from Cleopater, as Antipas from Antipater. Clopas was probably dead before Jesus' ministry began; for his wife and children constantly appear with Joseph's family in the time of our Lord's ministry.
