Bethabara (Near East geography model)

Lehi identifies Bethabara as the place beyond Jordan where John the Baptist was to baptize Jesus Christ. Bethabara is also mentioned in the biblical passage found in John 1:28. Bethabara has also been identified with Bethbarah, which, however, was probably not on the Jordan River but among the streams flowing into it.
