The River Arnon (The Amazon) flowed into the Jordan River in the Old Testament. Could that mean that the Jordan River was really the Atlantic Ocean?

Horace Butler dug and dug to find out. In the original Hebrew, the Jordan River is “Yarden nahar”. “Nahar” means not just river, but any large body of water. “Yarden” is from “Y-D-N” in Hebrew, which means “descending”, or to go down.
