Jordan River Winding and twisting southward, the Jordan River travels nearly 200 miles covering the span of 65 miles from the Sea of Galilee to the Dead Sea. It is the main river in Israel. This area is best known because of John the Baptist's actions. It was here, in the Jordan River, that John began baptising people, including Jesus himself. -Various photos of the Jordan Nazareth Nazareth is where Jesus grew up. The hills in the lower region of Nazareth are what define the southern border of Lower Galilee. The town served as a central marketplace for the surrounding areas, with agriculture serving as the main business. Artisans such as Joseph (the father of Jesus) catered to the needs of the farmers living in town. Present day Nazareth Galilee Today, Galilee would be the area straddling the southernmost part of Lebanon, and the northernmost part of Jerusalem. Predominantly agricultural area. Home of Jesus' youth. Jesus is often referred to as a Galilean. -Looking out from the city to the Sea of Galilee Back Home

  • to get a sense of the geographical flow of the canonical Gospels and the Acts of the Apostles. to learn about the major NT events that happened in the following Roman provinces and cities. to be able to identify these provinces and major cities (esp. the capitals) by location on a map
    • (for the Gospels, study the maps in the NOAB, pp. nt 40, 68, 131, 151, 424, and maps #9, 12, 13, 14 in back) (for Paul's letters, study the maps in the HCSB, (see also the long list of Online Maps from the "New Testament Gateway" website)
  • Since borders frequently shifted, there are some differences between the birth of Jesus (ca. 4 BCE), the death of Jesus (ca. 30 CE), the ministry of Paul (ca. 40-64 CE), and the writing of the other NT books (ca. 70-100 CE). The names of the ROMAN PROVINCES (or other significant regions) are in bold capital letters below; their first-century capital cities are in bold italics;

The Golan Heights Today

The Golan Law

The area in the north which came under Israeli control as a result of the 1967 Six-Day War and is popularly referred to as the "Golan Heights," is actually composed of two geologically distinct areas (divided by Nahal Sa'ar): the Golan Heights proper (approx. 1.070 sq. km.) and the slopes of the Mt. Hermon range (approx. 100 sq. km.).
While the Mt. Hermon range is mostly limestone, the Golan Heights proper is mostly basalt and other types of volcanic rock, forming a plateau that drops off to the west, to the Jordan River and Lake Kinneret (in the Syrian-African Rift Valley), and to the south, to the Yarmouk River. The plateau is crossed by a number of seasonal streams which run through valleys, sometimes very deep, and flow west into the Jordan or the Lake. The Golan proper may be divided into three regions: northern (between Nahals Sa'ar and Gilabon), central (between Nahals Gilabon and Dilayot), and southern (between Nahal Dilayot and the Yarmouk Valley). The northern Golan has double the average rainfall of the southern Golan, and often receives snow in the winter, as does the Mt. Hermon area. Hydrologically, nearly the entire Golan lies within the Lake Kinneret catchment basin, which supplies 30% of Israel's

A Trip in the history of Jordan
Jordan is a land steeped in history. It has been home to some of mankind's earliest settlements and villages, and relics of many of the world's great civilizations can still be seen today. As the crossroads of the Middle East, the lands of Jordan and Palestine have served as a strategic nexus connecting Asia, Africa and Europe. Thus, since the dawn of civilization, Jordan's geography has given it an important role to play as a conduit for trade and communications, connecting east and west, north and south. Jordan continues to play this role today. Because of its centralized location, the land of Jordan is a geographic prize which changed hands many times throughout antiquity. Parts of Jordan were included in the dominions of ancient Iraq, including the Sumerian, Akkadian, Babylonian, Assyrian and Mesopotamian Empires. From the west, Pharaonic Egypt extended its power and culture into Jordan, while the nomadic Nabateans built their empire in Jordan after migrating from the south of the Arabian peninsula.
Finally, Jordan was incorporated into the classical civilizations of Greece, Rome and Persia, the relics of which are scattered across the Jordanian landscape.

88. Far Jordan Weyr | About The Weyr - Climate And Geography

climate and geography This ain't a Hawaiian vacation, folks. We've seen many Southern-set weyrs beat the frolicking-tropical-island stereotype to death, making it sound as if, quite frankly, the closest they ever got to a jungle was the Discovery Channel. So we thought a bit of realism was in order. The temperature is not "pleasantly warm," the waters fraught with riptides, the forest interior difficult to navigate, and the beaches rather littered with driftwood and various other junk. But yes, it's very beautiful. Dangerous, maddening, difficult but beautiful. The Far Jordan climate is tropical, with temperatures typically ranging from 70 degrees to 100 degrees Fahrenheit (22 degrees to 44 degrees Celsius) and near-100% humidity throughout the year. Viz: hot and humid. Forget "warm" hot. Annual rainfall is 100 inches (250 cm). Sitting right on Pern's equator, the Jordans are barraged by monsoons from both the northwest amd southeast, leaving the beaches littered with natural debris. The "storm" or "wet" season is the most active time for monsoons, typically called "squalls." (Definition of the term "squall" has changed to be synonymous with "monsoon" or "typhoon," words considered to be archaic.) This lasts for seven months, from the Pernese equivalent of February to August. The "fair" season lasts for six, from September to January. Rain still comes during the fair season, but when it does generally interrupts the sunshine only briefly; most of it falling in short, strong bursts. Storm season squalls, to those who've never visited a tropical climate, can last for days or sevendays, with torrents of water pouring over the land. The raindrops are fat, heavy, and become rather painful if one is unprotected for a while.

Geography Excerpted from website at Historical Palestine is located in Western Asia, between latitudes 29.30 and 33.15 north and longitudes 24.10 and 35.40 east of Greenwich. Palestine is bordered on the west by the Mediterranean with a coastline that is 230 kilometers (km) long; on the east by Syria, with whom it shares a border of 70 km, and Jordan, with whom it shares a border of 360 km; on the north by Lebanon and Syria, sharing with them a border of 79 km; and on the south by the Sinai and the Gulf of Aqaba. The border from Taba, on the Gulf of Aqaba, to Rafah, on the Mediterranean, is approximately 240 km long. The Palestinian coast on the Gulf of Aqaba is 10.5 km long. The border between historical Palestine on the one hand, and Lebanon and Syria on the other, was determined in accordance with the Anglo-French Agreement concluded on 23 December 1920. The border between Palestine and Trans-Jordan (as it was known at that time) was determined by the British High Commissioner for Palestine and Trans-Jordan on 1 September 1922. The border between Palestine and Egypt was determined by the agreement concluded on 1 October 1906 between the Khideve of Egypt and the Ottoman government. Palestine has an oblong shape, measuring from north to south some 430 km. Its width varies from 51 to 70 km in the north and from 72 to 95 km in the middle. In the south, however, it becomes wider, extending to some 117 km. It then narrows again into a triangular shape, the tip of which touches on the Red Sea.

Geography of Jordan Jordan is a relatively small country situated at the junction of the Levantine and Arabian areas of the Middle East . The country is bordered on the north by Syria , to the east by Iraq , and by Saudi Arabia on the east and south. To the west is Israel and the occupied West Bank , while Jordan 's only outlet to the sea, the Gulf of Aqaba , is to the south. Jordan occupies an area of approximately 96,188 square kilometers including the Dead Sea , making it similar in size to Austria or Portugal . However, Jordan 's diverse terrain and landscape belie its actual size, demonstrating a variety usually found only in large countries.
Economic Overview
Led by an active private sector, Jordan’s economy is free market oriented. The ownership of enterprises is largely private, the exception being public sector involvement in the mining industry. Prices (except for a few subsidized goods), interest rates, and wages are generally determined by market forces.
Jordan's economy is mainly service oriented. The service sector, which is comprised of financial services, trade, transportation, communication, tourism, construction and education, contributes 71% to GDP and employs two-thirds of the labor force. The remaining 29% is contributed by the agricultural and industrial sectors.

The Kingdom is located in Near East between 29 and 33 degrees North and 37 and 39 degrees east. Jordan has borders with Syria on the north, with Israel on the west, Irak on the northeast and Saudi Arabia on the south. It has a 26 kilometer long seaside in Aqabah. The Dead Sea is the lowest point on surface of earth with around 400 meters below the sea level. The country can be divided in three major regions : -Desert -Jordan river valley : -East Bank Jordan has a mediterranean climate, pleasant all year round. From the middle of spring till the middle of autumn the weather is hot but dry. Due to its altitude, winters in Amman and in the east can be cold and evening in the summer are cool. In all other places Jordan enjoys a generally sunny weather even if rainfalls can be observed from november to mars mostly in the north, as in Aqaba the climate is hot and sunny all year round

100. Jordan - Geology
The geology of jordan is both its foundation and its building stone. It controls the country s jordan s Geological Regions. jordan can be divided
The geology of Jordan is both its foundation and its building stone. It controls the country's wealth in terms of natural habitats and landscapes, as well as the availability of water, building material, economic minerals and trade routes. Jordan's development, from its earliest days, owes much to its geology - with the use of flint and copper by Stone Age man and the use of geological/geomorphological features as ancient trade routes. Natural habitats and wildlife reflect the underlying geology in many ways: for example, certain plants favour limestone soils and particular birds are restricted to specific rock types - as we shall see ...
Jordan's Geological Regions
Jordan can be divided into 5 regions, based on its underlying geology:
  • Limestone with flint in the highlands and interior deserts.
  • Sandstone hills in the Rift Margins and Wadi Rum area.
  • Ancient basement rocks behind Aqaba.
  • Basalt desert in the north-east.
  • The Rift Valley, forming Jordan's western borders.
    1. Limestone Country
    The majority of the highlands and interior deserts of Jordan, especially in the north, are composed of limestone. Commonly, hard limestone, with or without chert beds, alternates with softer, more easily eroded layers. This forms craggy outcrops in cultivated areas and stepped hill profiles in desert areas, such as we shall see in Wadi al Mujib. The combination of limestone and a humid climate (as is experienced in the NW Highlands) leads to fertile soils and a rich natural flora. Jordan's best soils are found in these NW Highlands, but an increasing area is being built on by urban expansion.
