 Emmaus
    hot baths, a village "three-score furlongs" from jerusalem,
    where our Lord had an interview with two of his disciples on the
    day of his resurrection (Luke 24:13). This has been identified
    with the modern el-Kubeibeh, lying over 7 miles north-west of
    Jerusalem. This name, el-Kubeibeh, meaning "little dome," is
    derived from the remains of the Crusaders' church yet to be
    found there. Others have identified it with the modern Khurbet
    Khamasa i.e., "the ruins of Khamasa", about 8 miles south-west
    of Jerusalem, where there are ruins also of a Crusaders' church.
    Its site, however has been much disputed.
