Luke varies in different manuscripts and the figure given has been made even more ambiguous by interpretations. In the case of one possible candidate for Luke’s Emmaus, namely modern Motza, another evolution of the name has been suggested. Emmaus is the town through which Jesus and his disciples travelled to leave Jerusalem. Cleopas is a disciple who followed Jesus and who reminded Jesus of all of the people who believed in him and the Lord. The gospel places the story on the evening of the day of Jesus‘ resurrection. The two disciples have heard the tomb of Jesus was found empty earlier that day. They are discussing the events of the past few days when a stranger asks them what they are discussing.
Their eyes were kept from recognizing him. This passage is believed by some to be a late addition derived from the Gospel of Luke. There are several places in Judea and the Galilee called Emmaus in the Bible, the works of Josephus Flavius and other sources from the relevant period. Eusebius was probably the first to mention Nicopolis as biblical Emmaus in his Onomasticon. Jerome, who translated Eusebius’ book, implied in his letter 108 that there was a church in Nicopolis built in the house of Cleopas where Jesus broke bread on that late journey. From the 4th century on, the site was commonly identified as the biblical Emmaus. Archaeologically, many remains have been excavated at the site of the former Palestinian village, now located inside Canada Park, which support historical and traditional claims.
