Wherever you go in Jordan, you’re walking in the footsteps of history’s heroes. From Moses to Jesus, this is a land where the Bible is a matter of history rather than simplu faith. Mount Nebo, 6 miles west of Madaba is a designated pilgrimage site visited by Pope John Paul II in 200AD, and the site where Moses saw the Holy Land”.
Moses Memorial Church marks the spot where Moses is said to have died. On the summit of mount Nebo, overlooking the Dead Sea and the Jordan Valley, stands a modern bronze cross bearing a replica of the brazen serpent that God instructed Moses to erect on a pole to stop the plague He had sent during the Exodus journey.
