Emmaus in Fausset's Bible Dictionary
The village (60 stadia or furlongs, i.e. seven and a half
miles, from Jerusalem) to which two disciples were walking on
the day of Jesus' resurrection when He joined them
unrecognized. The Greek Church place it at Kuriet el Enab (Abu
Ghosh). The old name now reappears in Ainwas. But Conder
(Israel Exploration Quarterly Statement, October, 1876, p.
173) identifies it with Khamasa (a form of the Hebrew
Hammath), a ruin close to the modern village wady Fukin, about
eight miles from Jerusalem, near the Roman road from
Jerusalem, passing Solomon's pools, to Beit Jibrin.
