This beautifully illustrated book for children tells the story of the inspiring meeting between Jesus and his precursor, John the Baptist. The Jordan River and the baptismal site "Yardenit on the River" perform a leading role as well. 
Jim Reimann, a minister, author and tour leader who had led more than 25 pilgrimages to Israel, tells the story for children in an engaging rhyming text. The book combines the Biblical story of the Baptism of Jesus in the Jordan River with the story of the present day "Yardenit Baptismal Site", located on the same ancient river. 
In addition to the remarkable illustrations of the historical events, in the book you will find a photo of the "wall of New Life" that encircles "Yardenit", bearing the verses of Mark 1:9-11 in more then 80 languages and dialects. Each visitor will find these holy verses in his own mother tongue. Also included is a note to parents and teachers indicating the Bible passage upon which the Bible story portion of the book is based (Mark 1: 1-11). This makes the book more adaptable for families or classes with wide-ranging ages.

The Baptism of Jesus - A Story from the Jordan River

" 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" -
Mark 1:9-11. Beautifully illustrated for children, "Jesus is
baptized in the Jordan River" tells the story of this inspiring
meeting between Jesus and his precursor, John the
Baptist. Situated in a pristine natural environment at the
point where the Jordan River meets the Dead Sea in
southern Israel, Qasr El-Yahud is believed to be the
location where John baptized his cousin, Jesus of
Nazareth. It quates: "John did baptize in the wilderness
(…) and there went out unto him all the land of Judaea,
and they of Jerusalem, and were all baptized of him in the
river of Jordan, confessing their sins" (Mark 1:4-5).
Archeological remains from the Roman and Byzantine
periods, including the mosaics map of Madaba from the
sixth century, testify to an ongoing tradition of baptisms in
this area throughout the generations. Today, hundreds of
thousands of Christian pilgrims, following their savior,
come to Qasr El-Yahud to experience the presence of the
Lord and to renew their faith through Baptism in the
Jordan River. The author Jim Reimann was an ordained
minister and a Bible teacher. In his lifetime he led more
than 25 pilgrimages to Israel, which helped him to ensure
that these children's Bible stories are biblically correct as
well as historically accurate.
