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."

Geography and ancient cities are important to study as we learn from the Bible, let's pray:

Dear Jesus, thank you for the Bible and for giving us the ability to learn about history. Help us to trust and obey you more and more each day. And help us to remember the things we learn from your Word. In Jesus name... Amen!
