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.

The Rock, the Road, and the Rabbi Study Guide: Come to the Land Where It All Began
 
Product Description:

Are you ready to begin your journey to a deeper faith? In this six-session video study (DVD/digital downloads sold separately), Kathie Lee invites you to join her as she visits sites in Israel that have impacted her life. As she shares her story, coauthor Rabbi Jason Sobel, a messianic Jewish rabbi, provides fascinating background details that make the story of the New Testament come alive. Kathie Lee and Rabbi Sobel will take you and your group beyond the typical "Sunday school" teaching to examine the true texts of the Bible.

Something profound happens when we follow along the ancient paths in the actual places where Jesus taught, healed, lived, died, was resurrected, and ascended into heaven. As Kathie Lee and Rabbi Sobel reveal in this study, Jesus is indeed the Rock and the Rabbi whom we follow along this Road in life. And when we are introduced to the mysteries of the Word by teachers who are trained in the ancient rabbinical way, radical transformation begins to renew our hearts and minds.

The Rock, the Road, and the Rabbi Study GuideĀ includes video discussion questions, Bible exploration, and personal study and reflection materials for in-between sessions.

  1. Bethlehem: Where It All Began
  2. Nazareth: The Early Years

Product Description:
In 1869, Concordia, Kansas, was declared the county seat of what would become Cloud County. At first, the town existed only on paper as a project being pushed by James M. Hagaman and a small group of partners. Once development started, Concordia rapidly grew to become a center of commerce south of the Republican River that eventually attracted four railroad lines. It became a town of landmarks, including several famous hotels, two opera houses, Nazareth Convent, and a thriving downtown area. Characters in the story of Concordia include French Canadian immigrants, nuns, pilots, quarreling newspaper editors, German prisoners of war, and politician Frank Carlson. Readers can enjoy visiting the community's past in the pages of Images of America: Concordia.
