Bible Cities: Bethphage
Ancient Bethphage

Map of Ancient Bethphage


Bethphage in Easton's Bible Dictionary house of the unripe fig, a village 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, i.e., 2,000 cubits. It has been identified with the modern Kefr-et-Tur.

Bethphage in Fausset's Bible Dictionary ("house of unripe figs"): testifying the former fertility which no longer remains; a village on the mount of Olives, on the road between Jericho and Jerusalem. Close to Bethany, E. of it, since Bethphage stands first in describing a journey from E. to W. The traditional site is above Bethany, between it and the mountain's top. Schwarz places it W. of Bethany, on the S. shoulder of the mount, above Siloam. Here the colt for Jesus' triumphal entry was found (Matthew 21:1, etc.). The Talmud made Bethphage a district extending from Olivet to the Jerusalem walls. Others allege the sacrificial victims were kept there; this would give significance to its being the point whence the antitypical sacrifice proceeded to Jerusalem.

Bethphage in Smiths Bible Dictionary (g hard) (house of figs) the name of a place on the Mount of Olives on the road between Jericho and Jerusalem. It was apparently close to Bethany. Mt 21:1; Mr 11:1; Lu 19:29

Bethphage in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE beth'-fa-je, beth'-faj (from beth paghah; Bethphage, or Bethphage; in Aramaic "place of young figs"): Near the Mount of Olives and to the road from Jerusalem to Jericho; mentioned together with Bethany (Mt 21:1; Mk 11:1; Lk 19:29). The place occurs in several Talmudic passages where it may be inferred that it was near but outside Jerusalem; it was at the Sabbatical distance limit East of Jerusalem, and was surrounded by some kind of wall. The medieval Bethphage was between the summit and Bethany. The site is now enclosed by the Roman Catholics. As regards the Bethphage of the New Testament, the most probable suggestion was that it occupied the summit itself where Kefr et Tur stands today. This village certainly occupies an ancient site and no other name is known. This is much more probable than the suggestion that the modern Abu Dis is on the site of Bethphage.
