Jordan is a modern country, a holy river, and an ancient culture- a timeless physical and spiritual panorama of prophets, miracles, and human faith.

 

The very name of the country - Jordan - retains the unique baptismal aura of a holy river and a blessed land.

 

God's command of righteousness and His promise of eternal love and peace through faith are deeply etched into the earth and memories of Jordan.

 

Visitors and citizens daily walk through the plains, valleys, hills, mountains and streams whose names were forever fixed into human consciousness by the simple deeds and the profound messages of prophets - Abraham, Moses, Lot, Aaron, Elijah, Joshua, Jesus, John the Baptist, Mohammad and others who walked this land and crossed its river during their missions on earth.

Many of the sites where they performed miracles or reached out to ordinary people are identified, excavated, protected and easily accessible to visitors. 

For a religious pilgrimage or touristic visit to the holy land of Jordan, the Bible is more than a document of faith it is also a gazetteer and a virtual road map of ancient places, people and events associated with this serene and spiritual land.
