Holy Land Pilgrimage - Day 5 - HOLY TRINITY


On DAY 5 of the Pilgrimage, the students and chaperones had a very special morning at Tel Al-Kharrar “Bethany beyond the Jordan,” where John baptized Jesus (John 1:28; Mark 1:9-11). Archaeological remains suggest Christians may have come here to worship since the second century. Here, baptismal vows were renewed: “Sealed by the Holy Spirit in Baptism and marked as Christ’s own forever.”

More images from the day: Rainbow overlooking Jerusalem from the Jordan side; Bethany beyond Jordan baptismal site; Mount Nebo, where Moses looked over the promised land (Deut. 34:1-4); floating in the Dead Sea; and water play at the Marriott!
