Sabbath day's journey - A Jew was permitted to travel 2,000 cubits on the Sabbath (Exod. 16: 29 and Num. 35: 5), about 1.2 km. (3/4 mile), and the Mount of Olives was within this distance from Jerusalem (Acts 1: 12). W. R. F. BROWNING. "Sabbath day's journey." A Dictionary of the Bible. 1997, on encyclopedia.com
