Kleofa na mwenzake wakikutana na Yesu njiani kadiri ya mchoro wa Joseph von Führich, 1837.

Kleofa (kwa Kigiriki Κλεόπας, Kleopas[1][2][3][4][5]) alikuwa Mkristo wa karne ya 1, maarufu kwa kutokewa na Yesu Kristo mfufuka akiwa njiani kutoka Yerusalemu kwenda Emau pamoja na mwanafunzi mwingine[6] (Lk 24:13-32).

Simulizi la Injili ya Luka[hariri | hariri chanzo]

Ilikuwa siku ya tatu baada ya kifo cha Yesu, ambayo ndiyo ya ufufuko wake kadiri ya Agano Jipya. Ingawa hao wanafunzi wawili walikuwa wamesikia kwamba kaburi la Yesu lilionekana tupu, hawakupata moyo wa kubali mjini zaidi.

Njiani walikuwa wakishirikishana huzuni yao kwa Yesu kushindwa kurudisha ufalme wa Israeli. Ghafla mgeni akaongozana nao na kuulizia sababu ya huzuni yao. Baadaye aliwakaripia kwa kukosa imani akawafafanulia utabiri wa Agano la Kale kuhusu Masiya.

Walipofikia kijijini walimuomba abaki nao usiku, lakini walipoanza kula, mgeni huyo alimega mkate: ndipo walipomtambua kuwa Yesu.

Hapo mwenyewe alitoweka, nao wakarudi mjini kupasha habari kwa mitume wake, waliomuambia kwamba Yesu amemtokea pia Simoni Petro.

Habari hiyo inasimuliwa kifupi na nyiongeza ya Injili ya Marko pia (16:12-13).

Taarifa za baadaye[hariri | hariri chanzo]

Mara nyingine Kleofa huyo anasemekana ndiye yule anayetajwa na Injili ya Yohane (19:25).[7]

Mwanahistoria, askofu Eusebius wa Kaisarea, anaripoti maandishi ya Hegesippus, ambaye mwaka 180 hivi BK alisema kwamba miaka ya nyuma aliwahi kudodosa wajukuu wa Mtume Yuda akajibiwa kuwa Kleofa alikuwa ndugu wa Yosefu, mume wa Bikira Maria [8]

Kleofa anaheshimiwa kama mtakatifu: na Waorthodoksi tarehe 30 Oktoba,[9] na Wakatoliki tarehe 25 Septemba, na Wakopti tarehe 10 Novemba.
