Jericho is one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world. In fact, archaeologists discovered evidence of human settlement in Jericho dating back at least eleven thousand years. The fertile Jordan River is almost certainly responsible for the city’s continued population, and modern-day Jericho is a popular destination for tourists from around the world. American Christian travel to Jericho—and the rest of the territories today occupied by Israel—is usually seamless, as the United States government maintains a friendly, positive relationship with the government of Israel.
Tours of Jerusalem and Jordan
Any Christian visiting the Holy Land would consider their trip incomplete without some guided Christian travel to the Jordan River, which was the font from which many ancient human civilizations sprung, and was a major site of early Christian development during the time of Jesus of Nazareth. In fact, Christian travel to Jericho is one of the area’s primary sources of income. Christian travel to Jerusalem regularly includes a visit to other regions of religious significance in Israel and the surrounding territories.
Christian travel to Jordan River, as well as Christian travel to Jerusalem, should always be supervised and led by experienced tour guides such as those who work for Holy Land Bible Seminars. The benefit of being led through the Holy Land on your Christian travel to Jericho is that you don’t have to worry about finding accommodation or knowing the right spots to eat, as the experienced, professional locals who make up the tour guide team will take care of that for you. You can also guarantee that you’ll see all that you need to see during your Christian travel to Jericho, with key holy sites like the Sea of Galilee and Qumran featured in all great guided tours.
As a Christian, when you visit Jericho, you want to make sure that you visit the Mount of Temptation and, of course, where Jesus was baptized on the banks of the Jordan River.
