Since Jericho is located in Area of Palestine, Israeli residents are not permitted to enter. You’ll pass a sign informing that you’re entering Area A when you reach Jericho Palestine. Palestine is divided into three categories: A, B, and C; Area A is under complete Palestinian Authority supervision, and Israelis are not permitted there. No Israeli settlements in Area B, which is under joint Israeli-Palestinian civil rule.
Area C, meanwhile, is under total Israeli civil and security authority, with the exception of Palestinian people.
Zacchaeus was keeping an eye on Jesus as he entered Jericho. To view him, Zacchaeus climbed a sycamore tree. Today, this sycamore is still standing in the heart of Jericho. It’s thought that Jesus approached this particular tree, glanced up at Zacchaeus, and made plans to meet him there. Zacchaeus, who was he? In Jericho, he was a tax collector.
Qasr al Yahud, Jesus Christ Baptism Site
Jesus’ baptismal location is located at Qasr al Yahud, which is just outside of Jericho on the Jordan/Palestine border. It is not advised to swim across at Qasr al Yahud since there are Jordanian soldiers on one side and Palestinian forces on the other. You are free to choose to get baptized.
