John the Baptist Known (and less Known) Baptism Sites
Titled by some as the “Last prophet, and the first Saint,” John son of Zachariah preached in first century Judea about the coming of the Messiah. He operated mostly in the Judean desert, wearing a cloak made of camel hair, and eating mostly locust. John argued for immersing the body in fresh water in order to accept “the annointed one” (the Christ). It became known as Baptism. Soon after, John became known as “John the Baptist“. This special private tour will take you to two sites where the gospels recorded John operating baptizing people. The first is quite known, by Jericho. The second is almost a secret location, known only to a few scholars and adventurers.
