Ephraim in the wilderness is a phrase used in the New Testament Gospel of John (11:54) used to refer to a town. According to the narrative, Jesus retired to the Ephraim with his disciples after he had raised Lazarus, and when the priests were conspiring against him. It lay in the wild, uncultivated hill-country to the north-east of Jerusalem, between the central towns and the Jordan valley.
