Metaphysical meaning of Abilene (mbd)
Abilene, ab-l-le'-ne (Gr.)--a plain; region of Abila; fr. Abila, land of meadows.
Meta. Assyria, the Syrians, and John the Baptist all refer to various phases of the intellect and its activities. Abilene therefore represents a richness and a fertility of intellectual capacity through which Spirit can work to bring about in the individual a perception and acceptance of Truth.
