Travel Log # 6 Jordan Part 2 Amman and Mt. Nebo 1998

Amman, Jordan was our introduction to the middle east. It’s a friendly city with mosque’s calling out the time for prayer. It was a reminder to me to prayer to my Heavenly Father. We were on our way to Israel! Amman, Jordan was first on our itinerary. This gave us the opportunity to visit Amman, Mt Nebo and Petra. What a thrill!

Picture 1 is on our way from Amman to Mt. Nebo. As usual my pictures don’t go or stay in the order I put them in. Please be patient with me.

Picture 2 is a beautiful tapestry hanging in our hotel. I love tapestries and couldn’t resist taking a picture of this one!

Picture 3 Sunrise from our 11th floor hotel window! Notice the speaker towers from the mosque.

Picture 4 is about the same picture as 3 except during the daytime.

Picture 5 is a valley the Children of Israel were sure to have gone through on their way to the Promised Land!

Picture 6 is of friend, Julie, looking at the replica of the bronze snake on a pole that we read about in Numbers 21:9 So Moses made a bronze snake and put it on a pole. Then when anyone was bitten by a snake and looked up at the bronze snake, he lived.

Picture 7 is a church at Mt Nebo built by the Byzantines!

Pictures 9 &10 are mosaics at the Mt Nebo church and are from 511 AD!

Picture 8 is Jerry beside a Memorial of Moses at Mt. Nebo.

1 Then Moses climbed Mount Nebo from the plains of Moab to the top of Pisgah, across from Jericho. There the LORD showed him the whole land—from Gilead to Dan, 2 all of Naphtali, the territory of Ephraim and Manasseh, all the land of Judah as far as the Mediterranean Sea, 3 the Negev and the whole region from the Valley of Jericho, the City of Palms, as far as Zoar. 4 Then the LORD said to him, “This is the land I promised on oath to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob when I said, ‘I will give it to your descendants.’ I have let you see it with your eyes, but you will not cross over into it.”

 5 And Moses the servant of the LORD died there in Moab, as the LORD had said. 6 He buried him[a] in Moab, in the valley opposite Beth Peor, but to this day no one knows where his grave is. 7 Moses was a hundred and twenty years old when he died, yet his eyes were not weak nor his strength gone. 8The Israelites grieved for Moses in the plains of Moab thirty days, until the time of weeping and mourning was over. Deuteronomy 34:1-8

Pictures 11 and 12 are the bridge crossing over the Jordan River into Israel! What a thrill! Security was very tight. The vehicle in the picture is of one in front of us.
