Start the day early with a drive to the early Byzantine church of Saint George in Madaba (Numbers 21:30), site of the world famous Madaba Mosaic Map. It was during the 6th century that an unknown artist created what is now known today as the oldest known map of the Holy Land on the floor of a Byzantine cathedral. Continue to Mount Nebo (Deuteronomy 34:1-5), the site where the Old Testament says Moses lived out his final days and saw the Promised Land, which he would never enter. Return to Israel via the Allenby Bridge Border Crossing and complete border procedures between Jordan and Israel. Before driving to our hotel for the evening we stop at Qumran, at the foot of the vertical cliff of the Judean Desert, the location where the Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered.
