Recorded on the west bank of the Jordan River during sand storm, the inaugural episode of Hebrew Voices features Gordon’s broad insight into the scriptural, geographical and cultural contexts for this special place in Biblical history. Joining Gordon to share his unique perspectives is Anthony Garcia—who believes Yeshua was the Messiah, yet doesn’t consider himself a Christian. Gordon and Garcia discuss the world-changing events that occurred at this exact location through the millennia: the Israelites crossing over “into the land”; Elijah and Elisha parting its waters; and the baptism of Yeshua by John the Baptist.
Gordon also speaks with tourists and pilgrims visiting the Jordan—including a Catholic priest from Italy and a California fisherman now living in Saudi Arabia who wanted to see the place he remembered from Bible storybooks.
The Bible keeps returning to the miraculous and muddy waters of the Jordan – and Gordon will, too. Stay tuned!
Looking forward to reading your comments!
