Bible Cities : Transjordan


Ancient Trans-Jordan - Kids Bible maps This map shows the region known as Trans-Jordan in the land of ancient Israel. The Trans-Jordan region of Israel was very fertile land that was well watered by the Yarmuk and Jabbok rivers. The hillsides were known for having flocks of sheep, goats, and roaming herds of cattle. The Trans-Jordan region overlapped with the district of Decapolis, so both terms refer to the same general location on the northeastern part of Israel.
