|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.
