Nazareth - Mount Precipice

Photo taken on the road from Tabor to Afula.  Nazareth was on top of the mountain to the right.  It extended behind the front ridge including behind the mountain where the road cut is. This mountain to the left is called Mount Precipice.  According to tradition this is the place where the henchmen of Nazareth tried to put an end to Jesus' ministry. Luke 4:28-29: "All the people in the synagogue were filled with anger when they heard this. They rose up, dragged Jesus out of town, and took him to the top of the hill on which their town was built, to throw him over the cliff. But he walked through the middle of the crowd and went his way".
