JORDAN, AL-MAGHTAS [BETHANY BEYOND THE JORDAN]: The location of the Baptismal Site of Jesus Christ by John the Baptist. Al-Maghtas is located on the eastern bank of the Jordan River, 9 kilometres (5.6 mi) north of the Dead Sea and 10 kilometres (6.2 mi) southeast of Jericho.

“Photos can’t really do justice to the experience of actually walking on the same ground that Jesus and John the Baptist did…to stand where God spoke, and the Holy Spirit descended is absolutely humbling and life changing. But here are a few photos to take you there in spirit, to see the place and the surroundings of where it all happened.” Jeffrey Bruno
