We were taken to Yardenit - an alleged site where Jesus was baptised. However, scripture indicates that he was baptised at Bethany beyond Jordan (Bethabara) and that is much further south and more likely where John the Baptist was in the wilderness. This section of the Jordan River, although popular amone many seems to be the wrong location. There were literally hundreds of people here and several groups were in white robes and being baptised by a minister, priest or parson.

Latin, Greek and Hebrew (?) of Mark 1:9-11 "And it came to pass in those days, that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized of John in Jordan. And straightway coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens opened, and the Spirit like a dove descending upon him: And there came a voice from heaven, saying, Thou art my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased."

This is the name given to Moses at the burning bush - See the story in Exodus 3. Wanted to ask the people at the site if they knew what it meant, but they were so busy.
