    Jack blue, I understand from the Scriptures in this chapter that it was a fact that the Jordan river over flowed. That being the worse time of the year for anyone or anything to attempt to cross and that GOD performed another miracle like the parting of the Red Sea should be our focus. And not that the author used form of communication or personification of the Jordan river. Glory be to GOD! Amen.

    I believe that God want them to remember and not to forget what He have done and let there little one be told about what God had done when ask. Why are these stones here?Thay can tell them.lt was God who buy us out and a across the Jordan river. A stones for easy tribe of Israel. God want us not to forget some things. So we can glorify Him in our live to other.

    Walking through Jordan river on dry ground after cleansing themselves was a type of water baptism just like when they walk through the Red Sea.
