It was in Bethphage that Jesus told two of his disciples to get a donkey, in preparation for Jesus' entry into Jerusalem, which was close by. Jesus later rode the donkey into Jerusalem, fulfilling a prophecy found in Zechariah 9:9, which speaks of a great king presenting himself to the people in a most humble way. See Matthew 21:1-11.
