About "Exploring Biblical Jordan"
:Most Bible readers associate its accounts with Jerusalem. Galilee, and other sites within the borders of the modern state of Israel. Yet many crucial events of the Old and New Testaments occurred not in Israel but on the other side of the famous river-in the Kingdom of Jordan. In this compelling video, director David Nunn brings you along as he follows the adventures of Lot, as he fled from Sodom and was sheltered in a cave; Jacob, as he wrestled with God by the river Jabbock; and Moses, as he led the great Exodus northwards from Aqaba. There's Mount Hor, where Aaron died and was buried; the plains of Moab, where Moses gave his final instructions and blessing; Beth Peor, where he pleaded to be allowed to enter the Promised Land; Mount Nebo, where he glimpsed it and died; Amman, where Uriah was killed in battle. We visit Elijah's homeland and the site of his dramatic departure; Petra, where the wise men possibly brought their gifts. At Bethany beyond the Jordan, John baptized Jesus, and Jesus met his first disciples; at Machaerus, John was imprisoned and beheaded. We even descend to the tombs, which the Gadarene demoniac frequented. These, and much more, make this a unique and gripping program. A Biblical exploration that really comes alive. Directed and Presented by David Nunn.
