Emmaus (town)

 

Pronunciation:  ehm-MAY-uhs

Occurrences:  4

First Reference:  Yeshua 27:54

 

Now Yeshua came again unto Judea, and when he was come to the town of Emmaus, the word of his coming spread throughout all Judea, Samaria, and Perea.

 

 

See:  Cleopas, John (son of Levi), Yeshua

 

Summary:  The town of Emmaus was located approximately seven miles northwest of present day Jerusalem. Emmaus is first mentioned in scripture as the location where Yeshua reunited with the twelve apostles and the seventy disciples after he had sent them from Mount Tabor to proclaim ‘the coming of the Lord’ (Y:19:1,60; Y:27:54).

 

According to scripture, John, the son of Levi (one of Yeshua’s disciples) was a resident of Emmaus (Y:31:1).

 

The book of Yeshua reports an event in which the resurrected Yeshua appears to two disciples as they were walking from Jerusalem to Emmaus. It is revealed that the two disciples are Cleopas and John, the son of Levi. As they were traveling, there appeared beside them a fellow sojourner ‘being laden with a great load’. The man asked for help in carrying the heavy burden, and the two agreed. As they made their way to Emmaus, John and Cleopas spoke with the stranger regarding Yeshua and how he was killed by the chief priests, for the man seemed unaware of the recent events. Having arrived in Emmaus, John and Cleopas invited the man to have supper with them. As they sat down to eat, the man blessed the bread and broke it in pieces to give to John and Cleopas. When the two looked upon the man, they saw Yeshua instead, who commanded that they should go and tell their brethren concerning the event (Y:48:19-27).

 

 

Notes/References:

 

Now there came secretly in the night unto Bethany, a ruler of the Jews whose name was Nicodemus; and with him also came John, the son of Levi from the city of Emmaus.

Yeshua 31:1
