They Tried to Throw Jesus Off This Cliff

by Andrew Forrest

Until I went to Israel earlier this year, I had very little feel for the the topography and geography of the Holy Land, which is funny, because now that I have eyes to notice, I see topographical and geographical details everywhere in the Bible. (Which, by the way, is a strong argument in favor of the trustworthiness of scripture–you couldn’t make all these little details up.)

Today’s account in Luke contains a great example of the kind of topographical detail I previously overlooked. I was astounded when I was standing on the cliff that overlooks Nazareth and realized that this is where Luke tells is that the townspeople of Nazareth tried to kill Jesus.

Here are some pictures:

Today’s Scripture:

Luke 4:14-30

I guess one can expect controversy from the people who think they know you… typically because you’re telling them something they do not want to hear. Maybe I can apply that to muse when I’m not able to hear. Listen then with my heart and not my agenda/ head.

And for folks who know us, it can feel humiliating to listen to us. That’s why we prefer listening to experts whom we don’t know, I bet.
