Transcript EMMAUS. 199 In the Middle Ages a miraculous spring was shown at this second Emmaus, which was said to owe its powers to the touch of Christ while on earth, and the town was called Fontenoide by the Franks, from the fountain which still exists. The third Emmaus was that village mentioned by St. Luke, " which was from Jerusalem about threescore furlongs," and which was probably the same as the Emmaus assigned by Vespasian to eight hundred of his retired warriors, and described by Josephus as sixty stadia from Jerusalem. From the fourth century down to the fifteenth the scene of the manifestation of the Master to the two disciples was fixed at Emmaus Nicopolis, which is distant about a hundred and sixty furlongs from Jerusalem ; and the Sinaitic MS., with other ancient texts, reads a hundred and sixty instead of sixty as the distance noticed in the third gospel. The crumbling apse of a little chapel still remains in 'Amwas, marking the supposed site of the spot where Christ was known by the breaking of bread ; but it has been pointed out by many authorities that the distance from Jerusalem is too great to allow of the double journey undertaken by Ueopas and his fellow-disciple without any interval of repose, for the single journey is considered sufficient for the ordinary traveller of the present day, even when mounted. Thus since the fifteenth century the site of the New Testament Emmaus has been sought anew. Many identifications have been suggested by various authors. Kuryet-el-'Anab and o onia, on the road from Jaffa to Jerusalem, are among the most recent, and ecclesiastical tradition has fixed on Kubeibeh, a village on the spur immediately south of Wady Suleiman, .-'# KURYET-EL-'ANAB, THE VILLAGE OF GRAPES. Probably the Kirjath of Benjamin. It is now commonly called Abu Ghosh. The large building on the right is the Church of St. Jeremiah.
