Mount Precipice

In addition to being a holy site, Mount Precipice provides a spectacular observation point overlooking the Jezreel Valley and the surrounding mountains. According to Christian tradition, Mount Precipice, also known as Mount Kedumim, is the place from which the Jews of Nazareth attempted to throw down Jesus, who raised their anger when he declared himself Messiah in a sermon. The villagers dragged Jesus to the top of the mountain, but at the last moment he managed to leap off the mountain and disappear. At the top of this mountain is the Three Faiths Lookout (397 meters above sea level). A beautiful path leads to a large stone paved area, in the center of which there is a large stone, an olive tree and a sign which tells the story of the place in Hebrew, Arabic and English. In honor of the Pope’s visit to Mount Precipice in 2009, an amphitheater seating 40,000 people was built on the northern slopes of the mountain. From the top, it is a powerful display and the city of Nazareth, built on a hill facing the mountain, serves as a magnificent setting.
