    This is the testimony made at the baptism site of John the Baptist at Bethany-Beyond-the-Jordan (some ancient texts refer to this site as Bethabara).

    As you can see, the text is in parentheses because it provides parenthetical information on an alternate name for Bethany-Beyond-the-Jordan.

    【有古卷作伯大巴喇】不是原文的一部分,而是注释,所以用括号。
