Does Jordan own the Jordan river?
No. According to international law, no country "owns" a river. The right of navigation on a river is subject to the sovereignty of the river. A river that is entirely within the borders of one country is subject to that country's sovereignty. As the Jordan River forms the border between two states, neither can impose sovereignty over the river and, therefore, Israel and Jordan share administration of the Jordan River.

"Crossing the River Jordan" symbolizes the movement of a human's consciousness, a transformation from the earth-bound viewpoint to a transcendent one. When a person realizes (not just believes) his/her identity with the Source, or Divine, or God (whatever you choose to call Original Cause), he/she h…as "crossed," or in some church terms, has been "born again." This movement is not a matter of belief , which amounts to a notion or concept held to be true, a word-symbolization of What Is; realization is a knowing , as in knowing that you are , that you be (as in I Am). Celebrate that you are (we are) the Son(s) of God. ( Full Answer )

A separate protocol regulated this transfer. B. Winter period - 16 October to 14 May of each year.
