JERUSALEM, Israel – Archaeologists in Israel say they may have discovered the true location of Emmaus, the Biblical town where Jesus first appeared to two of his followers after being crucified and resurrected.

Haaretz reports that researchers found the massive 2,200-year-old walls of a Hellenistic fortification believed to have been built by the Seleucid general who defeated Judah the Maccabee, the Jewish leader spoken of in the Hanukkah story.

Question:

You've been there since 40 years after leaving Egypt.

Why do you not know where your old towns are?

Jews haven’t lived there continuously for all that time. Exiles, invasions, conquests for millennia.

They were dispersed world-wide by the Romans about 100 years after Jesus. They didn’t come back en masse until after World War II.

Actually they were forbidden from living there for a while by various empires that eventually fell.

Goes to show that jews do belong there.
