Who is…

also known as: Kleopas and Cleophas

Greek: Κλεοπᾶς —transliteration: Kleopas or Cleopas

This is an abbreviation of Cleopatros (aka Kleopatros) (Κλεόπατρος), meaning “glory of the father”.

This is 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 definite about him. It is not certain that he was the Clopas of John 19:25, or the Alphaeus of Matthew 10:3, although he may have been so.
