Strong's Concordance #G1695

The city of Emmaus is only mentioned by the gospel writer Luke (Luke 24:13). It was located about 60 furlongs or roughly 7 and 1/2 miles (12 kilometers) from Jerusalem.

On the day Jesus' empty tomb was revealed to the world, two disciples were traveling the road from Jerusalem to Emmaus. An unknown man came to them as they spoke about the Lord's death and tried to comprehend the meaning of what took place that day.

The stranger, while explaining why it was necessary the Messiah suffer, die and be resurrected (Luke 24:25 - 27), accompanied the two men into the city. After they sat to eat a meal, it finally occurred to the two men that the stranger was Jesus! He vanished from their view the moment they understood it was him of whom they spoke (verses 28 - 31)!

Important verses

Luke 24:13 - 15, 30 - 31
And, behold, two of them went that same day to a village called Emmaus, which was from Jerusalem about threescore furlongs. And they talked together of all these things which had happened. And it came to pass, that, while they communed together and reasoned, Jesus himself drew near, and went with them . . .

And it came to pass, as he sat at meat with them, he took bread, and blessed it, and brake, and gave to them. And their eyes were opened, and they knew him; and he vanished out of their sight.
