SITE IN JORDAN:
For Christians, the most significant event associated with the River
Jordan is undoubtedly the baptism of Jesus Christ by John the Baptist.
Interestingly enough, this also took place very close to Beit 'Abara,
where Joshua, Elijah and Elisha crossed the river. In New Testament
times, it became known as Bethany, the village of John the Baptist.
This Bethany is not to be confused with the village of Bethany near
Jerusalem, where the Bible says Lazarus was raised from the dead.
The Bible clearly records that Jesus was baptized by John the
Baptist (Matthew 3: 13-17), and that John the Baptist lived, preached
and baptized in the village of Bethany, on "the other side of the
Jordan" (John 1: 28). The baptism site, known in Arabic as al-Maghtas,
is located at the head of a lush valley just east of the Jordan River.
It is now protected and by early 1999 it will be accessible to visitors.
After Jesus' baptism at Bethany, he spent forty days in the wilderness
east of the River Jordan, where he fasted and resisted the temptations
of Satan (Mark 1: 13, Matthew 4: 1-11).
The Bible then says that "Lot lived among the cities of the plain
and pitched his tents near Sodom" (Genesis 13: 12). The Southern
Ghor may thus be associated with one of the most dramatic stories in
the Bible, that of Sodom and Gomorrah. While conclusive proof has not
yet been found, some scholars see Bab al-Dhra' and Numeira as good candidates
for the biblical Sodom and Gomorrah, destroyed by God because of their
wickedness (Genesis 19). The other biblical "cities of the plain-"Admah,
Zeboiim and Bela (or Zoar)-may still be waiting to be rediscovered under
the ruins of Early Bronze Age towns as Feifa, Safi, Khneizirah, and
other places throughout the biblical Valley of Salt.
