Beth-abara (th'ăb'a-rah, or bĕth'ah-bâ'-rah), house of the ford, a place beyond Jordan. John 1:28. The R. V. and some of the best manuscripts read Bethany for Beth-abara; possibly it was at Beth-nimrah, or Nimrîn; or, as Conder thinks, at ʾAbarah, a leading ford of the Jordan on the road to Gilead.
