  • Bethany the house of Lazarus, Martha and Mary. According to the Illustrated Biblical Dictionary, CLIE, Bethany means "house of dates or figs". The shrine is shaped like a mausoleum, with a Greek cross plant and a dome that starts from an octagon. In the shrine, built in 1954, on the presbytery, a mosaic shows Jesus' encounter with Martha and Mary, before the resurrection of Lazarus. The celebrity of Bethany is not only due to the various rooms of the Lord, but comes especially from the impressive miracle he performed there: the resurrection of Lazarus. From the early days of Christianity, the tomb of this friend of Jesus attracted the devotion of the faithful, who as early as the 4th century erected around a shrine. Also in the twelfth century, a new basilica was erected on the tomb of Lazarus Between 1566 and 1575, the Franciscans of the Custody of the Holy Land got them allowed access to the grotto of Lazarus, but they had to open a new road by excavating a step passageway from outside the enclosure. It is the tunnel that is still used today, although the property remains Muslim.

  • If you have time you might consider visiting the Tomb of Lazarus. Not an easy place to get to unless you know where it is located and how to get there. Fortunately we had a local friend that took us there. It's a quick visit, maybe twenty minutes of your time.
  • A neat place to visit. Even if it isn't the actual tomb, we get a great visual of what one from that era looked like.
