A village on the eastern slope of the Mount Olivet, about two miles east-south-east of Jerusalem, and on the road to Jericho. It was often visited by Christ, Matthew 21:17 ; Mark 11:1,12 ; Luke 19:29 . Here Martha and Mary dwelt, and Lazarus was raised from the dead, John 11:1-57 Here Mary anointed the Lord against the day of his burying, John 12:1-50 ; and from the midst of his disciples near this village which he loved, he ascended to heaven, Matthew 24:50 . Its modern name, Aziriyeh , is derived from Lazarus. It is a poor village of some twenty families.
