The Place Of Christ's Ascension And Return
by Wayne Blank
Bethany is perhaps best-known from the story of Lazarus (John 11:1-44). Jesus often visited his good friend Lazarus, and his sisters Martha and Mary, at their home in Bethany. Jesus performed the miracle of raising Lazarus back from the dead at a tomb near the village.
Bethany also played a part in a number of other major events in the life of Jesus Christ:
Today, Bethany is a small village known as el-Azariyeh, meaning place of Lazarus, or simply Lazariyeh.
