Yeshua, gathering about him his disciples, would that he should go unto his own city,
and when he drew near unto the Horns of Hattin, he commanded that his disciples should
go alone to Mount Tabor and there wait for him.
Summary: Mount Tabor is a small mountain located in lower Galilee, about five miles
east of Nazareth and eleven miles west of the Sea of Galilee. Prior to his mission
to Lebanon, Yeshua gathered some one hundred disciples at Mount Tabor and appointed
twelve men to be apostles, setting over them Cephas, James and John (Y:18:1-3). Yeshua
then called his mother Miriam to appoint seven women “to be as ministers unto the
Lord” (Y:18:4). He then ordained seventy others to heal and preach “the coming of
the kingdom” throughout the land (Y:18:5-86).
After sending the Seventy on their way, Yeshua and his closest disciples ascended
Mount Tabor. It was on the mount that the disciples witnessed the transfiguration
of Yeshua, followed by the advent of Moses and Elijah (Y:19:1-8).
