Geocache Description:


The virtual co-ordinates above are right in front of the memorial cross on Mount Nebo, but the cache cannot be found here! In fact, it is not even on the Franciscan memorial compound. In order to obtain the coords for the location, one needs to dig into Moses’ life a little and solve the puzzle below.


                                                 

In May 2018 Vader&zoon (the Netherlands) came to Jordan. We noticed that there are not so many caches in this beautiful country with such rich history. We decided to leave three caches at three different places therefore: one in Amman, one in Wadi Rum and one here on Mount Nebo. Mount Nebo is famous for Moses, an extremely important prophet in Judaism (Moshe), Christianity (Moses) and Islam (Musa). According to the Holy Books after having led the Hebrews out of slavery in Egypt by the power of God, Moses was to lead them into the Promised Land. However, God did not allow him to enter the Promised Land, but led Moses up this mountain so he could have a good look over the entire Promised Land, from east to west and north to south. Moses died and God Himself buried him, no one knew the exact location of Moses’ grave (see Deuteronomy 34).

 

         

                                                                                                          

Find the answers to the following questions. Use the value of letters (a=1, b=2, c=3, and so on) in order to determine the word value and always bring the answer down to 1 digit. For example: ‘Moses’ = 71 = 8. If an answer gives you 68, than the right digit is 5 (6+8=14, 1+4=5). The answer is always one word or number and then always one digit.

A) Number of days the Israelites mourned over the death of Moses plus 3

B) The age Moses died at 

C) Name of the person God gave Moses to help him when talking to Pharaoh plus 1 

D) Moses threw a piece of this into the bitter waters of Marah and Elim in order to make it drinkable again minus 2 

K) God made Moses’ staff turn into this minus 2 

L) The mother of Moses tried to save Moses’ life by placing him on this water 

M) Father-in-law of Moses 

N) Moses desired to see (the glory of) God, but God only wanted Moses to see his back; in order to prevent Moses to see God’s face God covered Moses with this
