The Yam Suf and the Yardan crossings are the two termini of this epic chapter in the nation's history. The Yam Suf passage typifies our redemption from the world by Hashem's power through identification with Mashiach in His death, burial and resurrection. The crossing of the Yarden speaks of deliverance from wilderness wandering and entering into our spiritual inheritance, again through Mashiach's death, burial and resurrection.
