Quick Reference

On the north side of the Temple in Jerusalem and built after the return from Exile (Neh. 3: 1). It was probably the best way into the city for sheep to be driven for the sacrifices. The gate was apparently near the pool of Bethesda (John 5: 2), though the Greek text here is uncertain (the word ‘gate’ is absent in the Greek).
