Mount Nebo

"And Moses went up from the plains of Moab unto the mountain of Nebo, to the top of Pis'gah, that is over against Jericho. And the Lord showed him all the land. And the Lord said unto him, I have caused thee to see it with thine eyes, but thou shalt not go over thither. So Moses the servant of the Lord died ...." (5 Moses 34:1 - 4).


Scholars suppose this village to be the site of the biblical city of Nebo. In the middle of the 9th century B.C., King Mescha boasted that he had slain 7.000 men, women, boys, girls and maids at this place and had taken it from the Israelites.


In the Bible, Madaba is named Madeba or Medeba, city of the Sihon (4 Moses 21:30). The city lies in what was the territory of the race of the Reubens (Joshua 13:15 - 16 or Isaiah 15:2 and 1 Chronicles 19:7). The main point of interest in Madaba is the mosaic map of the Holy Land from Byzantine times.


In biblical times, the Wadi, or River Arnon, formed the natural border between the territories of the Moabs in the north and the land of the Edomites (later the Nabateans) in the south. The Wadi is mentioned in the Old Testament (at the time of King David) as the river which flows through the valley to the Dead Sea.


Kir, Kir-Moab and Kir-Heres are the Old Testament names for the town of Kerak (Isaiah 15:1, 16:7 and 16:11 and Jeremiah 48:36). In the time of the Judges, the Moabite King Eglon may have resided in Kir-Moab. In 850 B.C. one of his successors, King Mesha, was surrounded by the united Israel-Judah forces of Kings Jehoram and Jehoshaphat in Kir-Heres and could only escape defeat by sacrificing his first-born son.

Day 04



Buffet Breakfast at hotel.

In the Bible Petra is the city of the Nabateans, the descendants of the Nebajots (Genesis 25:12-18 and 1 Chronicles 1:29 and Isaiah 60:7). The first King of the Nabateans was Aretas (2 Corinthians 11:32). In biblical times the Nabateans were Bedouins even though Petra was a focal point for them (2 Chronicles 21:8). Later Petra became the royal city of the Nabateans. The earliest historical records for the Nabateans date back to the year 312 B.C. and the last sign of life was in the year 328 A.D.

Buffet Dinner & overnight at hotel in Petra.

Drive to visit Bethany that has been identified for nearly two millennia as the area where Jesus Christ was baptized by John the Baptist.

The late Pope John Paul II also visited the site as part of his spiritual pilgrimage to the Holy Land at the start of the new millennium.

Proceed to the Dead Sea, the lowest spot on earth 400 meters below sea level. The Dead Sea has an historical and spiritual legacy of its own. It is believed to be the site of five biblical cities: Sodom, Gomorrah, Admah, Zeboiim, and Zoar. Spend the day sunbathing, swimming, and relaxing in the gently lapping waters of the Dead Sea and be amazed that you can never sink! Buffet Dinner & overnight at hotel in Dead Sea.
