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.
