    The most important river in Palestine, and, in some respects, the most interesting one in the world.  It rises from various sources... The low-lying valley of the Jordan in its southern parts, where the depression is greatest, is virtually a tropical country, and requires nothing but irrigation to make it produce crops of tropical luxuriance.  One can understand why Lot chose it, forgetful of moral considerations, as the place of his residence (Gen. xiii. 8-13).  Jacob crossed the Jordan on his way to Mesopotamia, and recrossed it on returning to Canaan (xxxii. 10)... For the Israelites to cross the Jordan at any time, and above all when the river was in flood, required the miracle of the dividing of the stream narrated in the book of Joshua (Josh. iii. 1-17; iv. 1-24; Psalm cxiv. 3, 5, etc.)... It was there that our Lord was baptised (Matt. iii. 1-17; Mark i. 4, 5, 9, etc.; Luke iii. 1-3; iv. 1; John i. 28). (The Sunday School Teacher's Bible Manual, Hunter, 1894)
