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.
