"And, behold, two of them went that same day to a village called Emmaus, which was from Jerusalem about threescore furlongs." (KJV)
As Emmaus was 60 furlongs from Jerusalem, and as 1 furlong is equal to 220 yds., that means Emmaus was 7.5 miles from Jerusalem. Previous questions on the Christianity site (here) have discussed the possibility of a middle-of-the-week Wednesday crucifixion versus the traditional teaching of a Friday crucifixion in light of the three days and three nights Christ said He would be in the heart of the earth (Matt. 12:40).
But, because of the distance of Emmaus, I had concluded that a Wednesday crucifixion resulting in a Sabbath resurrection was out of the question since the apostles would not likely contemplate traveling 7.5 miles distance from Jerusalem on a Sabbath.
However, if they were in the custom of the "stretching" that was accommodated on the Sabbath day's journey - See answer to "How far was a Sabbath's day journey" here - and in light of their counting 2,000 cubits from the last house of the populated city, might it have been that the entire 7.5 miles to Emmaus was a populated route with the distance between each house being less than the maximum 2,000 cubits?
And, if so, would that have allowed the two apostles of Luke 24:13 to stretch the count of the 2,000 cubits (paces) for a Sabbath's day journey from one "home" to another all along that route to Emmaus on a Sabbath day?
