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
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.
