Pick up from Amman, visit Bethany Beyond the Jordan, which is officially recognized as the Baptism Site of Jesus in the Jordan River (John 1:24-28). This site also
appears on the famous Madaba Mosaic Map of the Holy Land, which you’ll see later today, and was a place of pilgrimage for early Christians. Baptisms can be
performed here, but permission must be requested in advance. Monks and hermits lived here during the Byzantine period and the archaeological remains of early
churches can still be seen, in addition to the modern St. John’s Orthodox Church.
If you would like to see Elijah’s hill (the traditional site for his translation into heaven), we would be happy to help you arrange a private tour to this spot.
Then, you’ll drive to Mt. Nebo, from where Moses viewed the Promised Land but was not allowed to enter (Deut 34:1-6). The site is now maintained by the
Franciscans, who have a monastery there. You’ll see 5th-century mosaics and baptismal fonts in the Moses Memorial Church, and learn more about the mountain
at the small on-site museum. Drop off in Amman
