In the next few days, we’ll be publishing highlights from a past Historical Geography tour of Jordan.
Jordan: Day One
The Jordan River, symbol of crossing over into God’s covenant. For Joshua, the Essenes, John the Baptist, and Jesus.
This the traditional site of Bethany-beyond-the Jordan, where Jesus was baptised. Also thought to be the place from which Elijah was taken into heaven. Coming up: the land of Ammon.
