During the time of Jesus and the Apostles, one of the East Mediterranean’s greatest trading centers was located in the southern Jordan city of Petra, the extensive rock-cut capital of the Nabataean Kingdom. During the Exodus, Moses and the Israelites passed through the Petra area in Edom, local tradition says that the spring at Wadi Musa (Valley of Moses), just outside Petra, is the place where Moses struck the rock and brought forth water. The Bible says that Moses was not allowed to enter the Holy Land but could only glimpse it from Mt Nebo because he struck the rock with his rod to bring forth water, instead of speaking to it, as God had commanded. Aaron, the brother of Moses and Miriam, who was called by  God to be Moses’ prophet, died in Jordan and was buried in  Petra at Mount Hor, now called Jabal Harun in Arabic (Mount  Aaron). A Byzantine church and later an Islamic shrine/tomb of Aaron were built on the summit of the mountain, which today attracts pilgrims from all over the world.
