Majestic Mountains of Sacred Scripture


by Dr. Manfred Kober

Mountains and hills of Bible lands were much in the thoughts of Biblical writers. Numerous mountains play a significant part in the Biblical events, beginning with Mt. Ararat and concluding with the return of the Lord to the Mt. of Olives before the Millennial Kingdom.  At that time, Jerusalem will be placed prominently at the top of the mountains (Mic. 4:2). In fact, the entire Millennium is likened to a mountain as Christ, the Rock of Ages, fills the whole earth with His greatness and majesty. Mountains stand for strength and steadfastness.  A study of major mountains of the Bible affords a new perspective on God's dealings with mankind, as we look at the topographical and geographical details intimately connected with the great works of God.
