Mount of Precipice

5:43:00 PM Unknown 1 Comments

Just south of Nazareth in the cliffs of Mt Kedumim is Mount Precipice, the traditional site of the cliff that an angry mob attempted to throw Jesus off of after his bold proclamation in the Nazareth synagogue (Luke 4:16-30). 

We had a beautiful afternoon sermon over looking the verdant Jezreel Valley (or Plain of Esdraelon) which is to be the site of the final battle of Armageddon.  A lot of understanding the Bible is understanding its geography and it has been helpful to actually put a geographic place with its name. Before our trip, I didn't realize that the Old and New Testament lands overlap--I still don't get it all, but I am at least a little bit better informed. Also visible from the Mount of Precipice to the west is Mount Tabor, the traditional site of the Transfiguration of Christ.

  1. This trip is one your children will never forget. What a blessing for them to have this experience to call upon as they read the scriptures.
