After this, Jesus and his disciples went out into the Judean countryside, where he spent some time with them, and baptized.123
Now John2 also was baptizing at Aenon near Salim, because there was plenty of water, and people were constantly coming to be baptized.
(This was before John was put in prison.)325
An argument developed between some of John's disciples and a certain Jewa over the matter of ceremonial washing.426
They came to John and said to him, "Rabbi,5 that man who was with you on the other side of the Jordan--the one you testified6 about--well, he is baptizing, and everyone is going to him."
