Jordan River
This photograph was taken near the river’s outlet from the Sea of Galilee.
The Jordan River begins north of the Sea of Galilee, flows into it, and then continues south to the Dead Sea.
Significant Events:
Lot chose the plains of the Jordan for himself (Gen. 13:10-11). Joshua divided the waters, allowing the Israelites to cross into the promised land (Josh. 3:13-17; 4:1-9, 20-24). Elijah and Elisha divided the waters (2 Kgs. 2:5-8, 12-14). Naaman was cured of leprosy (2 Kgs. 5:1-15). John the Baptist baptized many people, including the Savior (Matt. 3:1-6, 13-16).
