"YARDENIT - pilgrim baptismal..." Israel Things to Do Tip by Rawicz

Israel Things to Do: 781 reviews and 1,392 photos


YARDENIT - pilgrim baptismal site by the bridge of Jordan river, on the road to Kibbutz Kinnereth. Operated by the members of the Kibbutz, which was founded in 1913, and the first to plant dates in the area.
'But John also was baptizing in Ae'non near Sa'lim, because there was a great quantity of water there, and people kept coming and being baptized' (John 3:23).

Place of Jesus' baptism. This or another place - today we are not sure, but this is nice place.
