ONE-DAY MOUNT NEBO, MADABA & BAPTISM SITE TOUR

  • ONE-DAY MOUNT NEBO, MADABA & BAPTISM SITE TOUR

Mount Nebo: a nine-kilometer trip west of Madaba, Mount Nebo is also known as Siyagha. Madaba: “The City of Mosaics” is located 30 kilometers south of Amman. Baptism Site: winding through the Jordan Valley is the Jordan River; whose sacred waters witnessed many biblical and historical events.

Mount Nebo: it was the final station in the life of Prophet Moses, the “friend of God”. To here he journeyed from Egypt with his people, using the King’s Highway and passing by Wadi Musa (Petra) where he struck the rock to bring forth water.

Madaba: remains of the Roman Road can still be seen during the modern town, but it is the Byzantine and Umayyad mosaics of which Madaba is best known for. At the GreekOrthodox Church of St. George, the earliest surviving original map of the Holy Land exists. It was made around AD 560 by the artist Salamos. It includes about 150 biblical sites on both sides of the river, known in Byzantine times. The central focus of the Madaba map is the walled city of Jerusalem.

Baptism Site: Jesus Christ and the Prophets Joshua, Elijah, Elisha and John the Baptist all crossed it during their lifetime. Two kilometers east of the Jordan River, opposite to Jericho, is the small town of Behabara (Bet Abarah), referred to in the bible as “Bethany Beyond the River” and was once recognized as Tell AlKharrar, where Joshua crossed the Jordan River into Cana, ‘an after Moses’ death.
