Excerpt from Illustrated Bible Scenes and Studies: Containing Thirteen Comprehensive Maps of Bible Geography, Covering All the Countries of Bible History; With a Classified Pronunciative Index for Each Map
The Jordan is the sacred stream Of Christen dom, as the Nile is Of benighted Africa, and the Ganges Of pagan India. The Jordan is the sacred stream, not only of the Jew, who has Moses and the prophets; Of the Christian, who cherishes the memories Of his Master's life on earth; of the cast out Ishmaelite, who has dipped his wandering and bloody foot in this river since the days Of Hagar; but Of the Moslem, faithful also, wide scattered over the world, who all deep ly reverence the Jordan. NO other river's name is known so long ago nor SO far away as this, which calls up a host of past memories, from the Mohammedan on the plains of India, from the latest Christian settler on the prairies or Rocky Mountains Of America, and from the Jew in every part of the globe.
