This matches the location of Kiriath-Jearim, Abu Ghosh and Jerusalem, as well as the distance between them.

However, Benjamin Isaac, emeritus professor of ancient history from Tel Aviv University, warned that there are at least two other sites nearby which also have strong claims to be Emmaus.

He said: 'Finkelstein and Römer have a good case archaeologically, geographically, and topographically.

'However, it is a hypothesis and remains a hypothesis.'

Kiriath-Jearim is also described in the Bible as one of the places where the Ark of the Covenant stood before King David took it to Jerusalem.

According to the Bible, Moses had the Ark of the Covenant built to hold the Ten Commandments.

Judah the Maccabee, a priest who led a Jewish revolt against the Seleucid empire, was defeated and killed at Kiriath-Jearim in 160 BC by the Seleucid army led by general Bacchides.

Bacchides fortified the towns surrounding Jerusalem with large walls, including the biblical town of Emmaus.

Archaeologists believe they have found the walls built to fortify Emmaus.

Describing the site, Finkelstein told Haaretz: 'The importance of this site, its dominant position over Jerusalem, was felt again and again through time: in the eighth century B.C.E., and then again in the Hellenistic period and then again after the First Jewish Revolt and the sack of Jerusalem in 70 C.E.'

The latest research, including the claims bout Emmaus, are detailed in a forthcoming paper published in the journal 'New Studies in the Archaeology of Jerusalem and its Region.'

Finkelstein told Fox News: 'The finds at Kiriath-Jearim hint at its long-term role as guarding the approach to Jerusalem.

'The Hellenistic and Roman period remains shed light on the much-debated issue of the location of the New Testament's Emmaus.'

Romer added: 'Geographically I think that the distance to Jerusalem fits well, so I do think that Kiriath Yearim could have been the Emmaus of the New Testament.'

Indigenous, 2-Spirited Edmonton couple ‘shatter’ stereotypes to win Amazing Race Canada.
Edmonton’s Anthony Johnson and Dr. James Makokis are aiming to shatter misconceptions by being the first Indigenous, two-spirit couple to win Amazing Race Canada. The pair took first place during the finale of the show’s seventh season on Sept. 10, earning the coveted title and a $250,000 cash prize. Both Makokis and Johnson hoped by participating in the competition they could bring more awareness to diversity issues. “We have never seen a two-spirit, married, Indigenous couple on TV,” Makokis said.
