The Emmaus mystery : discovering evidence for the Risen Christ

Author: Carsten Peter Thiede; Matthew D'Ancona
Publisher: London ; New York : Continuum, ©2005.
Edition/Format:   Print book : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
For centuries scholars have tried to work out where Emmaus was: where, in other words, the risen Christ walked, ate and revealed himself. It is a crucial location in the map of Christian belief, and one of the great missing links of Christian archaeology, which has foxed excavators and biblical detectives for more than a millennium and a half. Where is the true site of the astonishing event recorded by St. Luke?
