The view of the Biblical Promised Land from the top of Mount Nebo, Jordan.  The water to the left is the Dead Sea, while present-day Israel is directly ahead.  This is the closest the modern visitor can come to imagining Moses' sight of the Holy Land, as reported in the Bible.  Today a Christian church stands here, but across the ages, peoples of all religions have been able to worship here without persecution.  This was even true in as Christians were persecuted elsewhere in Ancient Rome, and continued though the Crusades and the Islamic caliphates, all the way to today. © Rick Collier
