Day Tour to Madaba and Mount Nebo
The Tour will take you to visit some of Jordan’s most significant biblical and historical sites. Drive to visit Mount Nebo, where Moses looked upon the promised land, and is believed to be buried there as well. A shrine was built to commemorate him. Also visit the museum and church housing the byzantine mosaics.
“The Lord showed him all the land and told him do not cross there” (Deuteronomy 34:1-4). “So Moses the servant of the LORD died there in the land of Moab, according to the word of the LORD, and he buried him in the valley in the land of Moab opposite Beth-peor; but no one knows the place of his burial to this day.” (Deuteronomy 34:5-6).
From there continue 10km east to the Mosaic city of Madaba. The city was known in biblical times and was also mentioned on several occasions. The city is full of old mosaics from several eras and different ages, and most significantly, is the Byzantine Mosaic Map in the St. George Church depicting the region from 500A.D.
“So their territory was from Aroer, which is on the edge of the Valley of the Arnon (Al-Mujib), and the city that is in the middle of the valley, and all the tableland by Medeba…And the border of the people of Reuben was the Jordan as a boundary. This was the inheritance of the people of Reuben, according to their clans with their cities and villages.” (Joshua 13:16-23).
