Stunning archaeological discoveries between the Jordan River and Tell al-Kharrar since 1996 have identified this area as biblical 'Bethany beyond the Jordan', where John the Baptist was living when he baptized Jesus Christ.
This alone gives Bethany profound religious significance, however it was also the place where the first five apostles met and where the foundations of the early Christian faith were laid. Ancient prophets and biblical personalities including Moses, Joshua and Elijah are also associated with Bethany.
