Holy land Gift Pack- Jordan River Water , Jerusalem's Stones and Galilee Olive Oil
For those who believe that Jesus was baptized in the southern wilderness near the Dead Sea; there are two sites, one on the western bank (Qasr el Yahud) and one on the eastern bank (Al-Maghtas). Qasr el Yahud (Castle of the Jews) is thought to be where the Jews crossed over the Jordan and where Elijah the Prophet ascended to heaven. Qasr el Yahud is in the West Bank, southeast of Jericho and is not as easily accessible as Yardenit in the north. The site has been made more tourist-friendly with the addition of rails and steps into the water plus a visitor center.
The Book of Matthew does not describe where exactly Jesus was baptized by John (Mat 3:13-17) and there are different traditions. Some believe that Jesus was baptized in the Galilee where Yardenit is today; others consider Al-Maghtas on the Jordanian side as the true site and others hold Qasr el Yahud near Jericho to be the true baptismal site. However all traditions agree that the baptism took place at some point in the Jordan River.
These elements represent a deep spiritual value to the Christians world wide. The Olive Oil represent the anointing of the sick in many verses (Mark 6 :13) The Earth from Bethlehem carries spiritual value of the Holy Land ( Mark 4: 8) Water of the Jordan water carries spiritual values of baptism (1 Corinthians : 12 :13)
