  Bethany Beyond the Jordan
by Cristian_Uluru

John 1:28 speaks of: Bethany beyond the Jordan the place where John baptized; the expression "beyond the Jordan" referring to the east bank of the river. In a later reference to the same place on the east bank, John 10:40 says that Jesus travelled across the Jordan to the place where John first baptized: "And He went again beyond the Jordan, into that place where John was first baptizing and there He abode".

Address: Bethany Behiond the Jordan
Directions: Bethany is only 40 minutes away from Amman. Take the Airport Highway south of Amman and turn right where the brown sign indicates the road to the Dead Sea. Fifteen minutes before reaching the Dead Sea, the signs will indicate Bethany's location.
