Bible Cities: Aenon
Aenon was a place where John the Baptist was baptizing that contained much water.

Map of Ancient Aenon


Ancient Aenon - Map of New Testament Israel AE-NON (springs), A place where John baptized, west of the Jordan, John 3:23.
http://www.bible-history.com/geography/ancient-israel/aenon.html


Aenon in Easton's Bible Dictionary springs, a place near Salim where John baptized (John 3:23). It was probably near the upper source of the Wady Far'ah, an open valley extending from Mount Ebal to the Jordan. It is full of springs. A place has been found called 'Ainun, four miles north of the springs.

Aenon in Fausset's Bible Dictionary Near Salim, where John baptized (John 3:22-23; John 3:26; compare John 1:28), W. of Jordan. The name ("springs") implies" there was much water there." Robinson found a Salim E. of Nabulus, or Shechem, with two copious springs: compare Genesis 33:18. This would require Aenon to be far W. of Jordan; it agrees with this that, had it been near Jordan, John would scarcely have remarked that "much water" was there: but if far from the river, it explains how the plentiful water at AEnon was convenient for baptisms. There is an Ainun still near Shechem or Nabloos, with many beautiful streams and brooks. Ainun is as distant N. of the springs (three or four miles) as Salim is S. of them. The valley is called the wady Farah. (See SALIM.) The Ainun site is on the main line from Jerusalem to Nazareth. Here most probably, at the upper source of the wady Farah stream, between Salim and Ainun, was John's Aenon. The Israel explorer, Lieut. Conder, confirms this; moreover, this would explain John 4:4, "Jesus must needs go through Samaria; ... one soweth and another reapeth," etc. (John 4:37-38.) John the Baptist, the forerunner, prepared the way in Samaria; Jesus and His disciples must needs follow up by preaching the gospel there.

Aenon in Naves Topical Bible ENON (AENON) A place east of the Jordan River. Because there was plenty of water, John immersed people near Joh 3:23
http://www.bible-history.com/naves/E/ENON+(AENON)/


Aenon in Smiths Bible Dictionary (springs) a place "near to Salim," at which John baptized. Joh 3:23 It was evidently west of the Jordan, comp. Joh 3:22 with John 3:26 and with John 1:28 and abounded in water. It is given in the Omomasticon as eight miles south of Scythopolis "near Salem and the Jordan."
http://www.bible-history.com/smiths/A/AEnon/


Aenon in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE e'-non (Ainon): The place where John was baptizing "because there was much water there" (Jn 3:23). It was on the west side of the Jordan, the place where John baptized at the first being on the east (Jn 1:28; 3:26; 10:40). We may be sure it was not in Samaritan territory. Eusebius, Onomasticon locates it 8 Roman miles South of Scythopolis (Beisan), this stretch of land on the west of the Jordan being then, not under Samaria, but under Scythopolis. Its position is defined by nearness to Salim. Various identifications have been suggested, the most probable being the springs near Umm el-`Amdan, which exactly suit the position indicated by Eusebius, Onomasticon.omforter, Helper, Greek Paraclete. Beyond doubt however, "advocate ' is the correct translation in the passage in the epistle. The same Greek word also occurs in the Gospel of John (14:16,26; 15:26; 16:7) referring not to Christ but to the Holy Spirit, to whom Christ refers as "another comforter" whom He will send from the Father. In the Gospel various functions are ascribed to the Spirit in relation to believers and unbelievers. The word in the Gospel is inadequately translated "Comforter." The Spirit according to these passages, is more than Comforter and more than Advocate. See discussion under SALIM. W. Ewing

Ancient Aenon - Kids` Bible maps This map shows the location of Aenon in the land of Israel. The word aenon means "springs" which is a fitting name for this area where John the Baptist was recorded baptizing in the Bible. In Scripture it is referred to as the place "near to Salim."
