Sychar: Liar or drunkard (see)
(Isaiah 28:1,7) has been from the time of the
Crusaders usually identified with Sychem or Shechem
(John 4:5) It has
now, however, as the result of recent explorations, been identified
with 'Askar, a small Samaritan town on the southern base of Ebal,
about a mile to the north of Jacob's well.
