Why Jordan

Jordan is an elaborate mosaic of biblical history that dates back to the times of Genesis. A well-traveled bridge between east and west, sea and desert, Old and New Testaments, this land east of the Jordan River that in ancient times was a designated place of refuge is the only area in the Holy Land that links the lives of Abraham, Lot, Moses, Job, David, Ruth, Elijah, John the Baptist, Jesus and the Apostle Paul. Reminders of their stories are everywhere in Jordan.

Jordan is the home for Mount Nebo, where Moses gazed upon the Land he could not enter; Bethany Beyond the Jordan where Jesus was baptized by John at the east of the Jordan River; Madaba, home of the oldest mosaic map of the Holy Land; Lot’s Cave, where Lot and his daughters sought refuge after the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah; and many more. The events and lessons of the Holy Scriptures flow through the landscape much like the river that bears the country’s name. If you want to walk in the footsteps of the Prophets and truly immerse yourself in the stories of the Bible, Jordan is the destination.
