Tradition holds that this is the place where Jesus preached the Sermon on the Mount (Matt. 5-7). There is no concrete evidence to support this belief because the exact location is not specified in the Scriptures. However, this slope is in the right geographical area, and its appearance is certainly similar to what we might expect. One can imagine crowds seated on the rocks and the dirt of the hillside, listening to the Rabbi speak the message of the kingdom of God.
