Standing where Moses stood

One of the highlights of a tour to Jordan is a visit to Mount Nebo. This site is most famous because Moses went up to this mountain and looked at the land the LORD has promised to the descendants of Abraham.

Now Moses went up from the plains of Moab to Mount Nebo, to the top of Pisgah, which is opposite Jericho. And the LORD showed him all the land, Gilead as far as Dan, 2 and all Naphtali and the land of Ephraim and Manasseh, and all the land of Judah as far as the western sea, 3 and the Negev and the plain in the valley of Jericho, the city of palm trees, as far as Zoar. (Deuteronomy 34:1-3)

The view from Mount Nebo yesterday was the clearest I recall seeing in a long time. In our photo the northern end of the Dead Sea is visible.

Sorry, but the signal is too weak to post the photo.

Thursday evening at the Dead Sea. We enjoyed the visit of Petra and the trip to the Dead Sea. Tonight we are at a hotel on the shores of the Dead Sea. This is a beautiful location.

Hopefully I will be able to post photos soon.
