And when they approached Jerusalem and came to Bethphage, to the Mount of Olives . . . (Matthew 21:1a)
Bethany is about two miles (3 km) from Jerusalem, and the walk would normally take an hour, at most. This view of the Mount of Olives, looking out in the direction of Jerusalem, includes the modern path that winds over the summit. It likely follows a route similar to the ancient one that Jesus used.
