In a story told only in John's gospel, I am the pool where Jesus healed a man which had an infirmity thirty-eight years.

What pool am I?

John 5:1-9

   1: After this there was a feast of the Jews; and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.
   2: Now there is at Jerusalem by the sheep market a pool, which is called in the Hebrew tongue Bethesda, having five porches.
   3: In these lay a great multitude of impotent folk, of blind, halt, withered, waiting for the moving of the water.
   4: For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and troubled the water: whosoever then first after the troubling of the water stepped in was made whole of whatsoever disease he had.
   5: And a certain man was there, which had an infirmity thirty and eight years.
   6: When Jesus saw him lie, and knew that he had been now a long time in that case, he saith unto him, Wilt thou be made whole?
   7: The impotent man answered him, Sir, I have no man, when the water is troubled, to put me into the pool: but while I am coming, another steppeth down before me.
   8: Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk.
   9: And immediately the man was made whole, and took up his bed, and walked: and on the same day was the sabbath.

Answer: Bethesda
