Jordan has erected a Christmas tree at the site which is believed to be the site where Lord Jesus Christ received baptism.
As the world gears up to celebrate Christmas, Jordanians erect a 12-meters tall Christmas tree at the site which is believed to be the location where Jesus was baptized.
This site which is believed to be the location of Jesus’ baptism is about 40 kilometres (25 miles) in the west of the Jordanian capital, Amman. On Sunday, December 13, an event was organized. This event was specially organized during which the Christmas tree was lit up. This event was attended by Christians and Muslims alike.
This event was aimed to convey a message of peace to the world. At this occasion, Bishop Munib A. Younan, who is the President of the Lutheran World Federation stated, “It is a national day when we are lighting this tree to tell the world that living together Muslims and Christians is possible.”
“Jordan has become a model and as it is possible in Jordan, it can be possible all over the world.”
