The Kings’ Highway is the world’s oldest continuously used communication route, it used to link ancient Bashan, Giliad, and Ammon in the north with Moab, Edom, Paran, and Midian in the south.

Next drive to Madaba and its hinterlands were repeatedly mentioned in the Old Testament as Medeba, it was featured in narratives related to Moses and the Exodus, David’s war against the Moabites, Isaiah’s oracle against Moab, and King Mesha of Moab’s rebellion against Israel.

Some of the finest art of the early Christian centuries can still be seen in Madaba city, Church of Saint George, mosaic map of Jerusalem and the Holy Land.

Next stop is at Mt. Nebo, Mount Nebo’s windswept promontory, overlooking the Dead Sea, the Jordan River Valley, Jericho, and the distant hills of Jerusalem, Moses viewed the Holy Land of Canaan that he would never enter, he died and was buried in Moab, “in the valley opposite Beth-peor” but his tomb remains unknown.

Day 3:


Petra – Amman,

During the time of Jesus and the Apostles, one of the East Mediterranean’s greatest trading centers was located in the southern Jordan city of Petra, the extensive rock-cut capital of the Nabataean Kingdom.

During the Exodus, Moses and the Israelites passed through Petra area in Edom, local tradition says that the spring at Wadi Musa (Valley of Moses), just outside Petra, is the place where Moses struck the rock and brought forth water.

The Bible says that Moses was not allowed to enter the Holy Land but could only glimpse it from Mount Nebo because he struck the rock with his rod to bring forth water, instead of speaking to it, as God had commanded.

Aaron, the brother of Moses and Miriam, died in Jordan and was buried in Petra at Mount Hor, now called Jabal Harun in Arabic (Mount Aaron).

A Byzantine church and later an Islamic shrine/tomb of Aaron were built on the summit of the mountain, which today attracts pilgrims from all over the world, Aaron was the first High Priest of the Bible and is remembered for the beautiful blessing that God commanded him to give people.
