It was in Bethany that Yeshua performed his first miracle, healing Lazarus of his
blindness (Y:4:1-10). Soon after that event, Yeshua healed Simon of his leprosy (Y:4:11-12).
Throughout his ministry, Yeshua and his wife Mary, (and at times his disciples) would
stay with Martha and Lazarus in Bethany. Yeshua would often travel from Bethany to
teach on the Mount of Olives.
Now there lived in Bethany, Simon Ben Simeon, a Pharisee afflicted with leprosy.
And hearing of Lazarus he came unto Yeshua to be healed.
Now when it was evening, Yeshua went unto Bethany, and entering into the house of
Martha and Lazarus her brother, he tarried many days;
But Yeshua, being warned of God, left Bethany and journeyed unto Jericho, both he
and his disciples.
Now when the sixth hour of the day was come, the Lord returned unto Bethany, unto
the Mount of Olives, and there taught the people.
