We have שבת הגדול because the נס of crossing the Yarden didn't happen on Shabbos.

We have שבת הגדול because the נס of crossing the Yarden didn't happen on Shabbos. 

The ב"ח (O.Ch.430) writes, "why do we commemorate the נס  (sheep tied to bed ) on Shabbos instead of the tenth of Nissan." (actual date of נס)

He explains, "so as not to confuse it with a different נס that also happened on the10th of Nissan. The crossing of the ירדן happened on the tenth of Nissan but it did not happen on a Shabbos.  

By commemorating the נס  (sheep tied to bed ) always on Shabbos  and not on the10th Nissan

no one will think we are celebrating because of the other נס of crossing the ירדן.
