Book of Saints – Cleophas


CLEOPHAS (Saint) Martyr (September 28) (1st century) One of the two disciples of the Way to Emmaus (Luke 24), who is said to have been murdered by the Jews in the very same house where he gave hospitality to Our Lord on that first Easter Sunday It has been maintained, but without great probability, that this Cleophas is one and the same with Cleophas, the father of the Apostle, Saint James the Less (Matthew 10:3). According to Hegesippus, he would thus have been a brother of Saint Joseph.
