Precipice Mountain

Nazareth, where Jesus spent most of his life, has over the centuries held fast to the most famous story to come out of those years – Jesus’ synagogue sermon and its aftermath, when admiration for him turned to rage (Luke 4:16-39).

The site of the synagogue where Jesus preached has been marked for centuries, and so has the hilltop – Precipice Mountain –where tradition says the people of the city pursued Jesus. Mary, tradition says, was also here, frightened at the thought of what might happen to Jesus, until she saw he had emerged unharmed.
A road leads to the top of Precipice Mountain; on the way you’ll see a church marking the site where Mary is said to have watched fearfully. At the top of the mountain, where the cliff plunges to the Jezreel Valley below, enjoy the magnificent panorama as you contemplate this dramatic story.
