Emmaus

The ruins of a twelfth-century church now mark the village of Emmaus, toward which two disciples were walking when Jesus appeared to them after the resurrection. The massive stones of the church, just off the Jerusalem-Tel Aviv highway, are a dramatic backdrop for prayer and Bible reading. Among several sites called "Emmaus" (because of differing distances of the site from Jerusalem mentioned in Scripture) early Christian scholars believed it was here, overlooking the Valley of Ayalon, scene of an early victory of Joshua.
