 Nazareth wants world's largest cross


[b]Nazareth wants world's largest cross[/b]

The world's largest cross will be built in the Israeli Arab town of Nazareth in an attempt to draw millions of Christian tourists to the boyhood town of Jesus, according to an initial private building plan under consideration, officials said Sunday.

The proposal, which is still in its planning stages, is being floated by a group of affluent Christian businessmen from Israel and abroad.

The massive cross, dubbed "The Nazareth Cross," would tower 60 meters high, and would be decorated by some 7.2 million brilliant mosaic tiles made of Nazareth stone, according to project adviser Ibrahim Boulous.

The plans for the cross, which would be built next to the English Hospital in the ancient city, are still being worked on, and could be changed in the coming weeks, Boulous said.

Strange and surreal. Nazareth wanted nothing
to do with the carpenter's son and refused
to welcome His teaching while He lived!!

 Re: Nazareth wants world's largest cross

Only one verse comes to mind when I think of this sort of stuff:

Quote:
2 Peter 2:3 And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make [b]merchandise[/b] of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.

If God uses what goes on in that place to save even one soul from hell and darkness, that would be worth far more than all the people that are dressing in such attires, etc.

 Re:

There are two South American countries that in a joint effort constructed a cross with a Jesus like figure hanging on a large cross . It was exactly on the border between the two counties. I can't remember the counties, maybe someone else will know the countries and more details. After many years they had an uprising and a aurgument over which direction the cross and Jesus should be facing. It was finally settled with a comment from a very wise man from the country that had a rear view of the cross. He said just leave it, as is. More people in the neighboring country that not do have a remembrance of the world's Savour that our nation has. They need it more than us. Case settled.

Nebuchadnezzar's idol was 60 cubits high, too.

Truly, nothing is new under the Sun.

John 1:44-46
44 Philip, like Andrew and Peter, was from the town of Bethsaida. 45 Philip found Nathanael and told him, "We have found the one Moses wrote about in the Law, and about whom the prophets also wrote-Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph."

You think some of these people's ancestors finally realize something much much more than good came out of Nazareth.
