Follow The Prophets. Follow Jesus. Follow The Original Pilgrims.

In Old Testament times, the land east of the Jordan River included the Ammonite, Moabite and Edomite kingdoms. In the New Testament, the region included most of the cities of the Decapolis. The Greeks called it Perea, which meant the “territory beyond.” This is where Jesus taught multitudes, performed miracles and cast out demons, as he traveled back and forth between east and west, proclaiming his message.

Private Baptism at Bethany-Beyond-the-Jordan

The site of John the Baptist's settlement at Bethany Beyond the Jordan, where Jesus was baptized, has long been known from the Bible (John 1:28 and 10:40) and from the Byzantine and medieval texts.

The site has now been identified on the east bank of the Jordan River, in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, and is being systematically surveyed, excavated, restored, and prepared to receive pilgrims and visitors. Bethany Beyond the Jordan is located half an hour by car from Amman.
