John the Baptist’s 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 mainly in the Judean desert, wearing a cloak made of camel hair, and mainly eating locusts (Matthew 3:4). John argued for immersing the body in fresh water to be ready for “the anointed one” (the Christ). His act became known as Baptism, and John became known as “John the Baptist“. This unique private tour will take you to two sites where the gospels recorded John operating and baptizing people.
