Stretching through the Middle East from the Sea of Galilee in the north to the Dead Sea in the south, the Jordan River is central to the background of both Judaism and Christianity. The Jewish faith sites the river as the spot where the Israelites crossed into the Promised Land, while Christians know the river as the spot where Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist.

John the Baptist lifts up water from the Jordan River to baptize Jesus on the reverse of the 2020 1 oz Proof Silver Niue Footsteps of Jesus Jordan River Coins. Jesus may be the savior of humanity and a prophesized messiah, but John the Baptist is considered in both Christianity and Islam to be a prophet. In Christianity, he is honored as a saint and seen as a forerunner to Jesus as he announced the coming of Jesus and prepared the people for his coming ministry. Jesus purposely sought out John to baptize him before setting on his ministry.
