Ancient Bethany - Kids Bible Maps
This map shows the location of Bethany in the land of
Israel. The town of Bethany was located about two miles
east of Jerusalem on the road toward the city of Jericho.
Bethany is where the man named Lazarus lived, and he was
friends with Jesus. When Lazarus was sick his sisters sent
for Jesus to come and heal him, but Jesus had a different
plan! After several more days, Jesus and his disciples
learned that Lazarus had died. At that time they packed up
their things and traveled to Bethany. After Lazarus had
been dead for four days, Jesus called to him from outside
of the tomb saying, "Lazarus, come forth!" And Lazarus was
alive again! Simon the leper also lived in Bethany, and it
was at Simon`s house that a woman came and poured expensive
perfume on Jesus` head.
