John 11:54  (King James Version)
Jesus therefore walked no more openly among the Jews; but went thence unto a country near to the wilderness, into a city called Ephraim, and there continued with his disciples.

4:1-3 7:1 10:40 18:20

John 7:4 John 7:10 John 7:13

Ephraim appears to be the same city which is called Ephrain, 2 ; Ch 13:19 ; (where see the Note), and Ephron, Joshua 15:9 ,which
was situated eight miles north of Jerusalem, near Bethel, and apparently between that city and Jericho. Accordingly we find that a desert, or wilderness, extended from Jericho to Bethel ( Joshua 16:1 ),called the wilderness of Bethaven ( Joshua 18:12 ),in
which Joshua and the Israelites slew the inhabitants of Ai. ( Joshua 8:24 .) 2 Samuel 13:23 ; 2 Chronicles 13:19
