Excerpt: The Jordan River (American English) or River Jordan (British English) (Hebrew: nehar hayarden, Arabic: nahr al-urdun) is a river in Southwest Asia flowing to the Dead Sea. It is one of the world's most sacred rivers. In Judaism, the river serves as the eastern border of the "Eretz Yisra'el," the Land of Israel. In Christian tradition, Jesus was baptized here by John the Baptist. The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan takes its name from this river The Jordan River is 251 kilometres (156 miles) long. The river drops rapidly in a 75 kilometre run to swampy Lake Hula, which is slightly above sea level. Exiting the lake, it drops much more in 25 kilometres to the Sea of Galilee. The last section has less gradient, and the river meanders before entering the Dead Sea, about 422 metres below sea level, which has no outlet. Two major tributaries enter from the east during this last section: the Yarmouk River and Jabbok River. Its section north of the Sea of Galilee (Hebrew: kinneret, Arabic: Bohayrat Tabaraya, meaning Lake of Tiberias) is within the boundaries of Israel, and forms the western boundary of the Golan Heights. South of the lake, it forms the border between the Kingdom of Jordan (to the east) and Israel and the West Bank (to the west).
