Em’ma-us, or Emma’us (warm baths), the village to which the two disciples were going when our Lord appeared to them on the way, on the day of his resurrection. Luke 24:13. Luke makes its distance from Jerusalem sixty stadia (Authorized Version “threescore furlongs”), or about 7½ miles; and Josephus mentions “a village called Emmaus” at the same distance. The site of Emmaus remains yet to be identified.
