The town of Bethany for Little Kids

This map shows the location of Bethany in the land of Israel.

The town of Bethany was located about two miles east of Jerusalem on the road toward the city of Jericho. Bethany is where the man named Lazarus lived, and he was friends with Jesus. When Lazarus was sick his sisters sent for Jesus to come and heal him, but Jesus had a different plan!

After several more day, Jesus and his disciples learned that Lazarus had died. At that time they packed up their things and traveled to Bethany. After Lazarus had been dead for four days, Jesus called to him from outside of the tomb saying, "Lazarus, come forth!" And Lazarus was alive again!

Simon the leper also lived in Bethany, and it was at Simon's house that a woman came and poured expensive perfume on Jesus' head.

Now you know where Bethany is located, where Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead and visited with Simon the Leper!

Geography and ancient cities are important to study as we learn from the Bible, let's pray:

Dear Jesus, thank you for the Bible and for giving us the ability to learn about history. Help us to trust and obey you more and more each day. And help us to remember the things we learn from your Word. In Jesus name… Amen!
