Jordan River

Yardenit: Jordan River Baptismal Site | Israel

"Then Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan to John, to be baptized by him. John would have prevented him, saying, “I need to be baptized by you, and do you come to me?” But Jesus answered him, “Let it be so now, for thus it is fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness.” Then he consented. And when Jesus was baptized, immediately he went up from the water, and behold, the heavens were opened to him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and coming to rest on him; and behold, a voice from heaven said, “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased.” Matthew 3:13-17

 Our group stopped at Yardenit, a baptismal site on the Jordan River for these special professions. If you're one of the baptized, I have an extended photo collection that will be on the Shutterfly site for you to download!
