5 Jordan: Baptism of Jesus, Elijah’s Assumption, Arriving in Israel
by Steve Ray on November 9, 2022
Today is our final day in the country of Jordan and we arrived in Israel later today. We started the day at the baptismal site of Jesus at the Jordan River, where we celebrated Mass, renewed our baptismal vows, and I gave my talk on Being Born Again.
We saw the Hill of Elijah where he was assumed into heaven in a fiery chariot. From there we had lunch on the bus and drove north along the Jordan River until we crossed over the river into Israel, and arrived at our Ron Beach Hotel on the Sea of Galilee.
