Archaeologists in Israel have claimed to have discovered the true location of the biblical town of Emmaus, where Jesus first appeared to two followers after being crucified and resurrected.

The remains of a 2,200-year-old fortification at Kiriath-Jearim, a hill on the outskirts of Abu Ghosh, a village near Jerusalem have been uncovered by researchers.

The massive walls of the Hellenistic fortification are believed to have been built by the Seleucid general who defeated Judah the Maccabee, the Jewish leader spoken of in the Hanukkah story.

Tel Aviv University professor Israel Finkelstein, who leads the archaeologist project with Thomas Romer and Christophe Nicolle of the College de France, now claims that the hill and village should be identified as Emmaus.

In Christianity, Emmaus is significant as Jesus appeared to two of his apostles on the road to the town after his crucifixion and resurrection.

In Luke 24:13-35, the town is described as being fortified and about seven miles west of Jerusalem.

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.'
