Nazareth

We drove through the city of Nazareth, which may have been small in Jesus’ day but was pretty big by my standards today, and marveled at the sprawling fields of high-rise dwellings. We drove to the top of a small mountain, and saw the place where the people from his hometown tried to toss Jesus off a cliff in Luke 4. It was definitely a cliff, and had a beautiful view, including a great sunset (the sun goes down at like 5 here). We also saw a small mountain that might be the place where Jesus was transfigured before the disciples (we don’t know for sure where that was).

By this time, I was getting pretty tired and pretty hungry, so my focus had turned to getting back to the hotel for dinner.
