Baptism site of Jesus Christ As soon as Jesus baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and lighting on him. And a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, whom I love, with him I am well pleased” (MATTHEW 3: 16-17)
Jordan is bordered in the west by the Jordan River, it is here where John the Baptist baptized the Lord, it is a site of such religious spiritual significance that pilgrims arrive daily to get baptized in the same water that baptized the Lord.
Jordan River runs through our land as it does through biblical history, purifying and nourishing both physically and spiritually. At this location one can instantaneously go back in history where God and man met in the path of salvation. A reality between soul and faith reinforced in time everlasting.
(JOHN 1:28) says “These things took place at Bethany on the other side of the Jordan, where John was giving baptism” referring to the east part of the river. In a later reference to the same place on the east bank. (JOHN 10:40) says “And he went again to the other side of the Jordan, to the place where John first gave baptism; and he was there for a time”
