The region of Trans-Jordan for Little Kids

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.

Now you know where the region of Trans-Jordan is in the ancient land of Israel!

Geography and ancient cities are important to study as we learn from the Bible, let's pray:

Dear Jesus, thank you for the Bible and for giving us the ability to learn about history. Help us to trust and obey you more and more each day. And help us to remember the things we learn from your Word. In Jesus name... Amen!
