'Stadia' in the Bible
On the same day, two of Jesus' followers were walking to a village called Emmaus, about 60 stadia from Jerusalem.
After they had rowed about 25 or 30 stadia, they saw Jesus walking on the sea toward their boat. They became terrified.
Now Bethany was near Jerusalem, about fifteen stadia away,
The wine press was trampled outside the city, and blood flowed from the wine press as high as a horse's bridle for about 1,600 stadia.
The city was cubic in shape: its length was the same as its width. He measured the city with his rod, and it measured at 12,000 stadia:Its length, width, and height were the same.
