“That same hour,
They got up.
They found the eleven
And their companions
Καὶ ἀναστάντες αὐτῇ τῇ ὥρᾳ ὑπέστρεψαν εἰς Ἱερουσαλήμ, καὶ εὗρον ἠθροισμένους τοὺς ἕνδεκα καὶ τοὺς σὺν αὐτοῖς,
Luke said that that very same hour (αὐτῇ τῇ ὥρᾳ), they got up (Καὶ ἀναστάντες) and returned to Jerusalem (ὑπέστρεψαν εἰς Ἱερουσαλήμ). There they found the 11 apostles (καὶ εὗρον…τοὺς ἕνδεκα) and their companions (καὶ τοὺς σὺν αὐτοῖς) gathered together (ἠθροισμένους). Whatever brought these two disciples to Emmaus was forgotten. They rushed back to Jerusalem to be with the 11 apostles and the other disciples of Jesus. That would have been about a 7-mile walk that could have taken about a couple of hours. Luke was the only canonical gospel writer who had this story about the two disciples in Emmaus. Would you walk 7 miles at night?
