Nazareth Village allows you to experience Nazareth as it was during the times of Jesus – to see its sights, hear its sounds, and even breathe in its aromas.
Located on a pastoral patch of farmland in the modern city of Nazareth, a tour of Nazareth Village provides an authentic experience of the land of the Bible.
You are greeted by costumed “inhabitants” (who actually grew up in Nazareth), and feel Jesus’ teachings come alive along the Parable Walk. You can see women spinning wool, drawing water and baking bread, and watch men tilling the soil, threshing wheat, and herding sheep and goats.
At the olive oil press you’ll learn that the word “Nazareth” comes from the Hebrew for a new shoot of an olive tree, the “branch” of Isaiah 11:1. A look inside a fully reconstructed house, followed by a visit to a synagogue of the type in which Jesus preached in this very town (Luke 4:16-28), will give you new insight into the years Jesus spent here preparing for His ministry.
Nazareth Village is a truly unique way to experience life in the Bible.
