The desert: a silence that speaks

 

“...Ascend this mountain of the Abarim, Mount Nebo in the land of Moab facing Jericho, and view the land of Canaan, which I am giving to the Israelites as a possession.”

(Deuteronomy 32:49)

  

The pilgrimage in Israel, Palestine and Jordan will take you along the paths traces by the Patriarchs and the Prophets preparing you to discover the places where Jesus lived.

The words of the Old and of the New Testament will come back to mind while you are visiting some of the cities that preserve the roots of Christian history: Mount NeboMadaba, Tabga, Capernaum, Cana and Jerusalem.

---

The colors of the Neghev and Wadi Rum deserts will take you by surprise, as will the view of Petra , a wonder built into pink stone by the Nabateans, let alone the Oasis of Ein Avdat in the spectacular scenerynbsp;of the biblical Wilderness of Zin. You will discover the Greco-Roman ruins of Jerash and you will have the possibility of renewing your baptismal promises at Qasr el Yahud besides seeing the caves where the famous manuscripts of the Essene community were preserved in Qumran.
