Nazareth


Nazareth, Israel
Nazareth is the capital of, and largest city in, the North District of Israel. As of 2006, Nazareth had an estimated population of 64,800.

During 1948 Arab-Israeli War, the city, despite having a majority Arab population, was easily captured by Israeli troops. Arab town leaders agreed to a formal surrender document in exchange for promises for Israeli officers, including Ben Dunkelman who led the operation, that no harm would come to either the town or the civilian population of the town. Hours later Haim Laskov (who would later in life become Israeli Chief of Staff) ordered Dunkelman to expel all Arab civilians from the town, but Dunkelman refused the order. Laskov then tried to get the order sanctioned by higher authority, but David Ben-Gurion vetoed it. As a result of these events, the Arab population remained in the Nazareth, and today the city is home to a large number of Israel's Arab citizens, and acts as the effective capital for Israeli Arabs.

According to the New Testament, Jesus spent his childhood in Nazareth. The city is thus an important location for Christian pilgrimage, and there are many sites in Nazareth with biblical associations. These include:
  • The Church of the Annunciation - The largest Christian building in the Middle East, and in Roman Catholic tradition, the site where the Archangel Gabriel announced the future birth of Jesus to the Virgin Mary.

  • St. Gabriel's Church - According to East Orthodox tradition, the site of the annunciation

  • The Synagogue Church - The traditional location of the synagogue where Jesus taught.

  • Church of St. Joseph's Carpentry - The traditional location of Joseph's workshop.

  • Mensa Christi Church - The traditional location where Jesus dined with the Apostles after the Resurrection.

Product Description:

Nazareth is best known as the home of Joseph and Mary and hence also Jesus, although the New Testament states that he was born in Bethlehem.

As the place where Jesus may have grown up, studied and lived most of his life, Nazareth has for two thousand years been closely identified with Christianity and has attracted hundreds of millions of pilgrims from around the world.

Nazareth is also Israel’s largest Arab city and as such serves as a major cultural center. Over the past decade the historical Old City has been extensively renovated, preserving and restoring the architectural beauty and unique character of its narrow lanes and alleys.

Wink Travel Guides introduce you to the best world travel destinations, in a clear and concise way, illustrated by photos.

Product Description:

This is the first archaeological and historical biography of the most fascinating and revered woman in history, Mary of Nazareth, the mother of Christ. Millions of faithful around the world invoke her as their Queen, Protectress and Advocate.

But who was this extraordinary woman who was chosen by God to give birth to the Saviour? Bestselling author Michael Hesemann searched for her traces in Italy, Israel, Turkey and Egypt. Based on biblical traditions, legends and archaeological discoveries, he reconstructs the life of Mary of Nazareth, the Mother of the Messiah.

From the most ancient Icon of Christianity to the Holy House in Loreto, from the Grotto of Nazareth to the refuge of the Holy Family in Egypt, from Mary's residence in Ephesus,Turkey to Mount Zion and her empty tomb in Jerusalem, this is a journey of discovery, full of surprising insights which deepen our faith in the great mystery of the Incarnation.

Hesemann takes us on his exciting search for the historical Virgin Mary –a book full of stunning discoveries from the early days of Christianity – and the historical facts behind the worldwide and centuries long devotion to the mother of Jesus.
