One of the top CHH artists, Lecrae, got baptized at the Yardenit Baptismal Site in the Jordan River during a visit to Israel. He also visited Jerusalem, the Mount of Beatitudes and Capernaum, posting photos and enthusing about walking in the footsteps of Jesus on social media.
Alongside tweet of his immersion in the Jordan River on Thursday
“Today we got baptized in the Jordan River. The one John baptized Jesus in… Getting baptized in it was an incredible experience for me. When you come back out of the water, you come back to life as a new creation. When I was immersed into Christ (not just water) I also become a new creation: ‘Therefore, if anyone is in Messiah, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.’ The more you learn the Jewish roots the more truth comes alive.” Says Lecrae
