(ssay' lihm) Place name meaning, “peace.” Town near which John the Baptist baptized (John 3:23 ). Its site is disputed: northeast of Dead Sea near Bethabara; west bank of northern Jordan valley eight miles south of Scythopolis; in Samaria four miles south southeast of Shechem. The third site would identify John as well as Jesus with Samaritan ministry. See Samaria. The second and third sites would have John leaving for the north, allowing Jesus to minister near Jerusalem. See Aenon ; John 2.
