“Bethphage” (Aramaic: “house of un-ripe figs”) was a small village east of Jerusalem, known from the New Testament as the place to which Jesus sent his disciples to find a donkey and a colt upon which he would ride into Jerusalem (Mat. 21:1).

The site is identified on the eastern side of Mount of Olives, and has a Catholic church and a Greek-Orthodox church at the spot.
