ABILENE

(ab ih lee' nee) Small mountainous region ruled by the tetrarch Lysanias at the time John the Baptist began his public ministry (Luke 3:7). Abilene was located about eighteen miles northwest of Damascus in the Anti-Lebanon mountain range. Its capital was Abila. In A.D. 37 Abilene came under the administrative control of Herod Agrippa I. Later it was part of the kingdom of his son, Agrippa II.
