Today I will be on Relevant Radio’s Morning Air at 8 AM to talk about Martha. She lived with her brother Lazarus and her sister Mary in Bethany where Jesus lived when he was in the Jerusalem area. You can listen at www.RelevantRadio.com.
Click on the picture of Bethany for a larger image. It is much bigger now than in Jesus’ day. Today it is an Arab town called El-Aziriye, after Lazarus. It was the home of Lazarus, Mary and Martha.
This demonstrates again that the Bible is historical and accurate. The places mentioned in the Gospels still exist. On our pilgrimages we visit, touch and pray at these sites. You can be proud to be a Catholic and confident in the Bible and the teaching of the Church!
To see these sites on DVD, get our Jesus, the Word Became Flesh where we visit Bethany and the Tomb of Lazarus.
