Mt. Nebo - Israel Tours

Where Moses saw the Holy Land of Canaan, which he was never able to reach because he died and was buried in Moab

Many Jordan tours stop at Mount Nebo to take its vast view of the Dead Sea, Jordan River Valley, Jericho, and far off hills of Jerusalem. It is here that Moses saw the Holy Land of Canaan, which he was never able to reach because he died and was buried in Moab-”the valley opposite Beth-Peor” (Deuteronomy 34:6). Though Moses’ tomb remains unknown, it is said that Jeremiah hid the Ark of the Covenant, the Tent, and the Altar of Incense at Mount Nebo after consulting the Oracle. Clearly tours to Mount Nebo have a great deal of Biblical significance.

As a result, pilgrimages to Mount Nebo for early Christians became popular and a small church was built in the 4th century to commemorate Mose´s death. Travelers on tours to Mount Nebo can view some of the original stones that formed the church all those years ago. Those on Mount Nebo tours will delight at seeing the Serpentine Cross, which stands outside the sanctuary as a symbol of the brazen serpent taken into the desert by Moses as well as the cross on which Jesus was crucified.
