|1||Christ rides into Jerusalem upon an ass;|
|12||drives the buyers and sellers out of the temple;|
|17||curses the fig-tree;|
|23||puts to silence the priests and elders,|
|28||and rebukes them by the similitude of the two sons,|
|33||and the husbandmen who slew such as were sent to them.|

- Bethany was a village to the east of the mount of Olives, on the road to Jericho; fifteen stadia, (Joh. 11:18 ) or nearly two miles, as Jerome states, from Jerusalem. This village is now small and poor, and the cultivation of the soil around it is much neglected; but it is a pleasant, romantic spot, shaded by the mount of Olives, and abounding in vines and long grass. It consists of from thirty to forty dwellings inhabited by about 600 ; Mohammedans, for whose use there is a neat little mosque standing on an eminence. Here they shew the ruins of a sort of castle as the house of Lazarus, and a grotto as his tomb; and the house of Simon the leper, of Mary Magdalene and of Martha, and the identical tree which our Lord cursed, are among the monkish curiosities of the place.
