Beth-phage

Beth-phage

house of the unripe fig, a village on the Mount of Olives, on the road from Jerusalem to Jericho ( Matthew 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, i.e., 2,000 cubits. It has been identified with the modern Kefr-et-Tur.
