Show Notes

The Jordan River plays a significant role in several events mentioned in the Bible. Besides serving as the passageway through which the Israelites traveled from the wilderness to the Promised Land, the river takes center stage in stories about Elijah, Elisha, Naaman,  and John the Baptist. In looking for Jesus in the book of Joshua, we do not have to look much further than the Jordan River, which symbolizes baptism and renewal, moving from a place of hardship and struggle to a place of abundance and fulfillment, breaking free from oppression, leaving behind the old self, and spiritual purification and healing. But today, rather than dive deep into the significance of the River, we will linger for a while on the symbolism of the crossing in Part 2 of our two-part exploration of Jesus and the Jordan.

 

In our top ten list, we explore themes related to baptism, a new covenant, miraculous intervention, new beginnings, victorious conquest, and more that relate both to the crossing of the Jordan and the life and ministry of Jesus. Jesus is our ultimate example of faith, obediently walking the path of suffering and sacrificing His life for us. He calls us to step out in faith, even in the face of uncertainty and obstacles, knowing that He is faithful and will provide for our every need.
