Day 1:


Jerash – Anjara – Tel Mar Alias,

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, 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 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, and then drive to Amman for dinner and overnight.


Day 2:


Baptism Site – Nebo – Madaba,

You will start the day by visiting Baptism Site which is your next stop, Bethany beyond the Jordan River, (The Baptism site), for Christians, the most significant event associated with the River Jordan is undoubtedly the baptism of Jesus Christ by John the Baptist, the site, known in Arabic as al-Maghtas, 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).

Next stop will be Mount Nebo, 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 head to Petra, to your hotel for dinner and overnight.


Day 3:


Petra Sightseeing,

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, Moses and the Israelites passed through the 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, who was called by God to be Moses’ prophet, 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.
