After the Resurrection, Jesus tells the Apostles to meet Him in Galilee:
Then go quickly and tell his disciples that he has risen from the dead, and behold, he is going before you to Galilee; there you will see him. Lo, I have told you.” (Mt 28:7)
Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid; go and tell my brethren to go to Galilee, and there they will see me.” (Mt 28:10)
But go, tell his disciples and Peter that he is going before you to Galilee; there you will see him, as he told you.” (Mk 16:7)
However, we see that instead, the Apostles stayed in the locked upper room:
And they rose that same hour and returned to Jerusalem; and they found the eleven gathered together and those who were with them, (Lk 24:33)
It seems to me that the Apostles were waiting in Jerusalem (likely mourning Jesus' death) after the Passover; however, we see that two of Jesus' followers instead went to Emmaus. As we can see in this map, Emmaus is to the Northwest of Jerusalem, while Galilee is to the north:
What was these two's purpose in heading to Emmaus? Were they trying to carry out Jesus' command, or were they simply returning home?
For example, were these two Disciples heading towards the Mediterranean Sea to sail up to Galilee, was there a road heading through Emmaus that lead to Galilee, etc.?
