Mount Precipice

“Mount Precipice”, or “Mount of the Leap”, is the name given to the steep hill near the town of Nazareth that is believed to be the site where Jesus was rejected by the people of Nazareth.

They did not accept his claim of being the Messiah and so wanted to throw him off a mountain, but “he passed through the midst of them and walked away” (Luke 4:29-30).

Archaeological research at a cave beneath the summit yielded important prehistoric finds from 50,000 years ago. 

In 2009 an open air theatre was created near the mountain for a mass mass contucted by the pope Benedictus  XVI.
