“Bethany beyond the Jordan” is the name given in the Gospel of John (1:28) to the baptismal site of John the Baptist. Today this site is known in Arabic as “El Maghtas” (“The Baptism”).

The site was excavated in the 1990’s and proved to bear several ancient churches, monk cells, and baptismal pools.

In recent years several modern churches were built at the site, and a walkway was installed to the river.
