Day 1:


Baptism Site – Nebo – Madaba,

You will start the day by visiting the Baptism Site, Bethany beyond the Jordan River, for Christians, the most significant event associated with the River Jordan is undoubtedly the baptism of Jesus Christ by John the Baptist.

The baptism site, known in Arabic as al-Maghtas, is located at the head of a lush valley just east of the Jordan River.

Then visit Mount Nebo, which was the Final station in Moses’ historic flight from Egypt to the Holy Land.

Moses and his people camped “in the valley near Beth-peor”, a place long associated with the site known today as Ayun Musa (Springs of Moses), a small lush valley northeast of Mount Nebo Another name for Mount Nebo is Pisgah (Syagha in Arabic).

From 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.

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 and its surrounding regions in central Jordan.

Church of Saint George, mosaic map of Jerusalem and the Holy Land, the earliest religious map of the Holy land, and then drive back to Amman, to your hotel for dinner and overnight.


Day 2:


Jerash – Umm Qais – Pella,

Today you will start your visit with Jerash (Gerasa), once known as the land of Gilead, it was part of the Roman Decapolis and is sometimes referred to as the Pompei of the East, the best-preserved city of Roman times, and visit its theaters, temples, churches and colonnaded streets.

Then visit old Decapolis city of Gadara (modern-day Umm Qais), this is the place where Jesus taught the people about the Kingdom of God and performed his miracles.

It has been built directly over a Roman-Byzantine tomb and has a view into the tomb from the interior of the church. It is also located alongside the old Roman city gate on the road from the Sea of Galilee.

Then visit the sites of Penuel (modern-day Pella) and Mahanaim, have long been identied with two sites in north-central Jordan – Telul ed-Dahab al-Gharbi and Telul ed-Dahab al-Sharqi (the eastern and western Hills of Gold), Pella then known as Tabaqet Fahl, witnessed a determining battle between Muslims and Christian Roman.


Day 3:


Ajloun – Anjara – Tel Mar Elias,

You will start your day by visiting Ajloun – Overlooking the windswept olive groves of Ajloun are the remnants of the humble beginnings of a man revered in the three Abrahamic faiths – Elijah.

Next is a visit to Anjara which is mentioned in the Bible as a place where Jesus, his mother Mary and his disciples, passed through and rested in a nearby cave.

The cave, which has long been a Holy place for pilgrims, has now been commemorated with a modern shrine / church of Our Lady of the Mountain.

Up the winding roads leading from the village of Wahadneh lies Tel Mar Elias, one of the largest Byzantine churches in Jordan and an ancient site of pilgrimage, worship and interfaith coexistence.

Inscriptions on the Byzantine church and its mosaics led many to believe that the structure was built in honor of Elias (Elijah),

The site is not to be confused with Tel Elias near the Baptism Site, which is where some believe Elijah ascended to heaven.
