Bethphage

Bethphage

Bethphage, in the New Testament, unidentified place, near Jerusalem, traditionally between Bethany and the Mount of Olives.
Bethphage was a place in ancient Israel, mentioned as the place from which Jesus sent the disciples to find a donkey and a colt with her upon which he would ride into Jerusalem.

It is believed to have been located on the Mount of Olives, on the road from Jerusalem to Jericho (Matt. 21:1; Mark 11:1; Luke 19:29), and very close to Bethany. It was the limit of a Sabbath-day's journey from Jerusalem, that is, 2,000 cubits.
