“Jordanian Christians insist some of the most important ancient sites, such as the site of Jesus’ baptism, are on their side of the Jordan River. “We are the ones who inherited this birthplace of Christianity. I think we are agents to carry this as witnesses to the whole world,” says Father Nabil Haddad, a priest in the ancient Melkite Catholic Church who lives in Amman. Correspondent Kim Lawton reports on the Christian presence in Jordan.” – Religion & Ethics Newsweekly
