It was the home of ‘Simon the leper’ (Mark 14:3) and Mary, Martha and Lazarus (John 11:18). This village was where Jesus preferred to lodge rather than in Jerusalem itself (Matthew 21:17 Mark 11:11). It was in Bethany that Lazarus was raised from the dead (John 11) and Jesus dined at the house of Simon (Matthew 26:1-13, Mark 14:3-9, Luke 7:36-50, John 1:2:1-8). – Slide 1
