Is Bethphage the same as Bethany?

Asked 2 years ago

Hi, they mention Bethphage and Bethany in the New Testament, and I wondered if these two names were different names for the same place?

Bethphage and Bethany are not the same place. Both are places mentioned in the Bible. They are close to each other on the Mount of Olives. Bethphage is where Jesus sent his disciples to bring him a colt to ride into Jerusalem. Bethany is where Jesus stayed before his triumphant entrance into Jerusalem.
