Emmaus is a town in Judea or Judah. Also known as Hamthan, which means "hot springs". Cleopas and another disciple met the resurrected Jesus on the road to Emmaus.[1] Evacuations at the site found the ruins of a basilical mono-apsidal church built on the foundations of a more ancient house, indentified as the house of Cleopas. Judas Maccabee won a great victory over the Seleucid army of Gorgias and Nicanor near Emmaus in 166 BC.
