John 1:28



Strong’s #G963, Bethania. The name in Hebrew means House of Depression or Misery. We read about Jesus making a fig tree here with no fruit to wither (Matthew 21:18-22). No such place exists or has been found because it is an enigma, a parable. Brown-Driver-Briggs simply write, “It is most probable that Bethany disappeared after the Apostles’ time”.
