BETHPHAGE

(behth' fuhjee) Place name meaning, “house of unripe figs.” A small village located on the Mount of Olives near Bethany on or near the road between Jerusalem and Jericho. Reference is made to the village in each of the Synoptic Gospels (Matthew 21:1; Mark 11:1; Luke 19:29). In each account Bethphage was where Jesus gave instruction to two disciples to find the colt on which he would ride into Jerusalem for His triumphal entry. This may also be the place where the fig tree was cursed (Matthew 21:18-22; Mark 11:12-14, Mark 11:20-26). Today one may still find rolling stone tombs in Bethphage, such as our Lord was buried in. See Mt. of Olives; Triumphal Entry.
