Jordan river baptism


Located on the banks of the Jordan River, this site commemorates the baptism of Jesus, described in the Gospel according to Mark 1:9-11:
“9 At that time Jesus came from Nazareth in Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan. 10 Just as Jesus was coming up out of the water, he saw heaven being torn open and the Spirit descending on him like a dove. 11 And a voice came from heaven: “You are my Son, whom I love; with you I am well pleased.”

Yardenit is a popular baptismal site located on the Jordan River in the Galilee region of Israel. It is a significant place for Christian pilgrims and tourists, particularly those seeking to experience the spiritual act of baptism in the same river where Jesus Christ is believed to have been baptized by John the Baptist.

Upon arriving at Yardenit, visitors often encounter a serene and peaceful atmosphere.
