Isrealites Passed Through River Jordan to the Promised Land 

Welcome to class!

In today’s class, we’re going to be talking about how Isrealites passed through river Jordan to the promised land. I trust you will enjoy the class!

Isrealites Passed Through River Jordan to the Promised Land 

After many years of traveling in the desert, the Israelites were finally close to the Promised Land. But there was one more challenge they had to face: crossing the River Jordan.

Preparing to Cross

The River Jordan was the last thing standing between the Israelites and the land God promised them. It was a big, flowing river, and it seemed impossible to cross because it was flood season and the waters were very high.

Following God’s Instructions

God gave Joshua, the leader of the Israelites, special instructions. He told Joshua to have the priests carry the Ark of the Covenant (a special chest that held important things to remind them of God) and step into the river first.

A Path Appears

As soon as the priests’ feet touched the water, something amazing happened. The water stopped flowing! It piled up in a heap far away, and the rest of the riverbed became dry. The Israelites could walk across on dry ground, just like they did at the Red Sea.

Remembering the Miracle

To remember this miracle, Joshua told twelve men (one from each tribe) to take a stone from the riverbed. They made a pile of stones on the other side as a reminder of how God helped them cross the river.

Entering the Promised Land

Once everyone had crossed, the priests with the Ark came out of the riverbed, and the waters returned to normal. The Israelites were finally in the Promised Land, ready to start a new chapter in their history.


The story of the Israelites crossing the River Jordan teaches us about faith and following God’s guidance. It shows that when we listen and trust in God, He can do wonderful things in our lives.

We have come to the end of today’s class. I hope you enjoyed the class!
