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.).
