Quick Reference

Hospitality was obligatory for Jews and in Jerusalem some rooms were made available at Passover time for visitors (Mark 14: 14). It was such a guest-chamber that, according to Luke 2, Mary and Joseph might have been looking for in Bethlehem. Guests normally expected water and towel, and perhaps oil and ointment (Luke 7: 44 ff.).
