Arriving in JordanOctober 07, 2016
I landed in Jordan today along with two dozen other Christian journalists, bloggers, and photographers. We had a good flight on Royal Jordanian that included a trip over the Mediterranean Sea, the northern part of Israel (and saw the Dead Sea), and part of Jordan.
Since we arrived close to supper time, we mainly just ate and got oriented as a group. I'm looking forward to seeing some biblical sites tomorrow and the following days. But even Amman holds a long history dating back to the Ammonites in the Old Testament. They descended from Ben-Ammi (son of Lot in Genesis) and appear multiple times in the biblical narratives. I'll see much more of this modern city in the coming days.
