The first map below shows Bethany to the east of Jerusalem. Jesus and His disciples stayed overnight each night in Bethany during the Passion Week (The week leading to His death, burial, and resurrection). Bethany is where Mary, Martha, and Lazarus (whom Jesus raised from the dead) lived. This also shows the route of Jesus' triumphal entry into Jerusalem during Passion Week.

New Testament Jerusalem 2

Below is what the Temple Mount in Jerusalem would have looked like in Jesus' time, showing the Jewish temple in the middle of the Temple Mount. This temple location was first started by Solomon (2 Chron 3:1) on Mount Moriah in Jerusalem. In that same location, King Herod, starting about 20 B.C., expanded the Temple Mount plaza to about 35 acres in size, and the 2nd Temple construction was completed during Jesus' time.  The Temple itself was built of shining white marble and gold. This Temple and all buildings on the Temple Mount were then destroyed by the Romans in 70 A.D.
