    Clarke's Commentary on Luke 24:28

    He made as though he would have gone farther - That is, he was going on, as though he intended to go farther; and so he doubtless would had they not earnestly pressed him to lodge with them. His preaching had made a deep impression upon their hearts, Luke 24:32, and now they feel it their greatest privilege to entertain the preacher.

    This is a constant effect of the doctrine of Christ: wherever it is felt, the Author of it, the ever-blessed Jesus, is earnestly entreated to dwell in the heart; and he who preaches it, is amply provided with the necessaries of life by those who have received his testimony.

    Wesley's Notes on Luke 24:28

    24:28 He made as though he would go farther - Walking forward, as if he was going on; and he would have done it, had they not pressed him to stay.
