Things that make you go hmmm

In the reading today for the TDP, Early Church Father, Origen, mentions that it was Simon who accompanied Cleopas on the Emmaus road. He’s not specific about whether it’s Simon Peter or another Simon, but there you go. Could be. Luke does not mention the other disciple by name (Lk 24:13ff) Make me wonder if Origen had access to other tradition or even because of his date (184/185 – 253/254 AD) access to the oral tradition. Anyway I thought it was interesting and that’s what blogs are for.
