Quick Reference

A place near Shechem in Samaria, though not identified with certainty. When Jesus and his disciples began a ministry of baptism, John moved on to Aenon (John 3: 22–3). John was not yet in prison (3: 24), whereas Mark (1: 14) appears to suggest that Jesus began his teaching only after John's arrest.
