Beyond The phrase "beyond Jordan" (הִיִּרדֵּן עֵבֶר, πέραν τοῦ Ι᾿ορδάνου) frequently occurs in the Scriptures, and to ascertain its meaning we must, of course, attend to the situation of the writer (see Kuinol, Comment. in Joh 1:28). With Moses it usually signifies the country on the western side of the river, as he wrote upon its eastern bank (Ge 1:10-11; De 1:1,5; De 3:8,20; De 4:46); but with Joshua, after he had crossed the river, it means the reverse (Jos 5:1; Jos 12:7; Jos 22:7). In Mt 4:15, it means "by the side of the Jordan." SEE ATAD.
