STRONGS NT 1695: Ἐμμαοῦς

Ἐμμαοῦς (in Josephus also Αμμαους), , Emmaus (Latin genitive-untis), a village 30 stadia from Jerusalem (according to the true reading (so Dindorf and Bekker) in Josephus, b. j. 7, 6, 6; not, as is commonly said, following the authority of Luke, 60 stadia), apparently represented by the modern Kulonieh (cf. Ewald, Gesch. des Volkes Israel, 2te Ausg. vi., p. 675f; (Caspari, Chronolog. and Geograph. Introduction to the Life of Christ § 191; Sepp, Jerus. u. d. heil. Land, 1:52)): Luke 24:13. There was a town of the same name in the level country of Judaea, 175 stadia from Jerusalem, noted for its hot springs and for the slaughter of the Syrians routed by Judas Maccabaeus, 1 Macc. 3:40, 57; afterward fortified by Bacchides, the Syrian leader, 1 Macc. 9:50, and from the 3rd century on called Nicopolis (B. D., under the word or ). A third place of the same name was situated near Tiberias, and was famous for its medicinal springs. Cf. Keim, iii., p. 555f (English translation, vi. 306f); Wolff in Riehm, p. 376f; (especially Hackett in B. D. American edition, p. 731).
