EN-SHEMESH

en-she'-mesh (`en shemesh, "spring of the sun"): An important landmark on the boundary line between Judah and Benjamin (Josh 15:7; 18:17). The little spring `Ain el chand, East of Bethany, the last spring on the road descending to Jericho, seems to suit the conditions. `Ain el chaud is usually called the "Apostles' Fountain" by Christians, on account of a tradition dating from the 15th century that the apostles drank there.
