After waking up this morning, we left out hotel in Tiberias on the Sea of Galilee and wnet to the southern end to perform several baptisms. We then continued south along the Jordanian border and visited Gideon Springs (see Judges 6 and 7, I think) and then Bet She'an, where King Saul was killed back in the Old Testament. In New Testament times, it was a GrecoRoman city called Skythopolis and was one city - the ruling city, I think of the Decapolis area where Jesus ministered.
Once our new drivers and guides had picked us up, we had a *ahem* rather hair-raising 2 hour trip to Mount Nebo, where God showed Moses the promised land, and where Moses then died. After another, um, stomach-challenging hour, we arrived at our hotel on the north eastern side of the Dead Sea (totally awesome hotel, BTW, but I'll really blog about it after I return to the States). Time to relax and have dinner!
