with Tertullus' charge against Paul of being a member of the sect of the Nazarenes (Nazarene (title)), ''Nazoraioi'', "men of Nazareth" in Acts. Against this some medieval Jewish polemical texts connect ''notzrim'' with the ''netsarim'' "watchmen" of Ephraim in Jeremiah 31:6. In Syriac Aramaic ''Nasrath'' (ܢܨܪܬ) is used for Nazareth, while "Nazarenes" (Acts 24:5) and "of Nazareth" are both ''Nasrani'' or ''Nasraya'' (ܕܢܨܪܝܐ) an adjectival form. Bruce

Other holy sites and shrines of pilgrimage exist in the Holy Land. In Jerusalem the Garden of Gethsemane, the Mount Zion Cenacle of the Last Supper and the Mount of Olives, as well as the Church of the Ascension (Chapel of the Ascension (Jerusalem)) prove spiritually important. Outside Jerusalem are pilgrimage places including the Sea of Galilee, as well as locations in Bethlehem, Nazareth, and Capernaum: * '''Nazareth''': The location of the Church of the Annunciation (in the Catholic tradition marks the site where the Archangel Gabriel announced the future birth of Jesus to the Virgin Mary WikiPedia:Nazareth Dmoz:Regional Middle_East Israel Localities Nazareth commons:Nazareth

. VivaEmilyDavies (User:VivaEmilyDavies) 23:57, 8 Apr 2005 (UTC) Two early examples of a talk box being used on studio recordings are Sly and the Family Stone's "Sex Machine" from their album "Stand" and Al Kooper with Shuggie Otis' "One Room Country Shack" from their album "Kooper Session", both released in 1969. The band Steppenwolf has used the Talk Box since at least 1970. On the album ''Live Steppenwolf'', on the tracks "Hey Lawdy Mama" & "Twisted" the talk box is clearly heard. On the album "Hour of the Wolf", on the track "Someone Told A Lie", some of the lyrics are sung through a talk box. Also John Kay was observed using a talk box on stage at two shows in New Jersey (Wildwood & Cherry Hill) in 1971. The band Iron Butterfly used a talk box in the song "Butterfly Bleu" from the album ''Metamorphosis (Metamorphosis (Iron Butterfly album))'' in 1970. Alvin Lee used a talk box for the Ten Years After song "I Say Yeah" from the album "Watt" in 1970. Young-Holt Unlimited featured a talk box on their song "Wah-Wah Man" also released in 1970 on the album "Born Again". Stevie Wonder first used a talk box on his album ''Music of My Mind'' in early 1972. Jeff Beck used the Kustom Bag talk box on "She's A Woman" from his 1975 release ''Blow by Blow''. He can be seen using it for the song "She's a Woman" on a BBC television performance in which he also demonstrates its use to the host of the show. In 1975, Nazareth lead singer Dan McCafferty (Dan McCafferty (musician)) used a talk box in the popular single "Hair of the Dog (Hair of the Dog (song))". In 1975, Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry (Joe Perry (musician)) used a talk box in their highly popular single "Sweet Emotion". In 1976, Steely Dan guitarist Dean Parks used a talk box during a solo in Haitian Divorce, on the album The Royal Scam. It was also used in a solo section of "East St. Louis Toodle-Oo", on their 1974 album "Pretzel Logic". Pink Floyd has also used the talk box in "Pigs (Three Different Ones)" from 1977's ''Animals (Animals (Pink Floyd album))'' album, and in "Keep Talking" from 1994's ''The Division Bell''. The band Stillwater (Stillwater (band)) used a talkbox on their song "Mind Bender" in 1977. Roger Troutman, lead singer of the R&B group Zapp used the talk box on their first hit single in 1980 "More Bounce To The Ounce" and was used in subsequent released songs that gave the group its distinctive sound. Some Roman Catholics believe the icon to be a true copy of the painting that according to legend was painted from the life by Saint Luke using the meal table of the Holy Family in Nazareth, and in Eastern Orthodox tradition was often identified with the ''Hodegetria'' icon, Our Mother of Perpetual Help and consider it to be a miraculous imprint of the Blessed Virgin Mary both in the Latins (Latin Church) and Orthodox (Eastern Orthodox Church) communities. The icon is unique and renowned due to Mary looking towards the faithful, while pointing at her son, Jesus Christ who is frightened by the instruments of crucifixion and is depicted with a fallen sandal. The text describes a conflict at the very beginnings of Christianity about the nature of Jesus of Nazareth. Stephen appears on the scene and recounts Revelation (Book of Revelation) as a literal truth, to which the crowd declare blasphemy, and Caiaphas has him arrested and beaten. Style The text is written with strong poetic skill (notable even in translation), and includes a heavily cyclical presentation of themes. It is not a "gospel" in the sense of an account of the works of Jesus of Nazareth, but is better understood as a homily. The text is generally considered by scholars one of the best written texts in the whole Nag Hammadi collection, considering its worth highly as both a great literary work and a gnostic exegesis on several gospels, canonical and otherwise. Boring notes that ''where'' is the first word spoken aloud in the Gospel. ''Where'' will also be the first word spoken by Herod in Matthew 2:4. Throughout the early part of the gospel geography will be a central concern of Matthew's, covered in far greater detail that in the other gospels. One theory is that Matthew is writing an apologetic for why the messiah comes from the small and unknown town in Nazareth in Gentile dominated Galilee. Boring, Eugene "Gospel of Matthew." ''The New Interpreter's Bible, volume 8'' Abingdon, 1995 pg. 140 This is the only time in the chapter that Magi speak. Davies and Allison believe their general silence throughout the narrative helps maintain the travellers aura of mystery. Davies, W.D. and Dale C. Allison, Jr. ''A Critical and Exegetical Commentary on the Gospel According to Saint Matthew''. Edinburgh : T. & T. Clark, 1988-1997. The portion of Micah where this quote is found is clearly discussing the messiah and states that like King David the messiah's origin would be in Bethlehem. At the time it was not widely accepted that the messiah would necessarily be born in Bethlehem, just that his ancestors would have been. It was thus not considered essential for a messiah to be someone born in that town, but it was considered a reasonable locale for a messiah to originate. Far more reasonable than the peripheral and little known town of Nazareth in Galilee where Jesus grew up. That the Gospel of Luke does not mention this sojourn at all and rather has Jesus in the town of Nazareth within days of his birth. Nolland, John. ''The Gospel of Matthew: a commentary on the Greek text.'' Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing, 2005 pg. 109 This has inspired a number of attempts to reconcile the two gospels. At the time Egypt controlled Gaza, only a few miles from Bethlehem. Some evangelicals thus feel that the family merely made this brief, and unremarkable journey, and did not go to Egypt itself. However at the time Egypt generally referred to the Nile Valley and most readers would have interpreted the term much the same way modern readers would. If the author of Matthew was referring to Gaza he was creating something of a false impression. Bethlehem to the Nile Valley is about 150 miles, and the journey would have taken at least a week.

Also, Daher maintained excellent relationships with the Greek Orthodox church in Nazareth and Acre which secured for him the sympathy and support of Russia. Daher understood early on the importance of a multi-confessional society as a means of prosperity and political support. Career Dana has toured in 46 of the 50 American states, around the East Coast of Australia and across Ireland, England, New Zealand, Mexico, Kazakhstan and Siberia. Dana performs at festivals ranging from Farm Aid with Willie Nelson and Neil Young to the Harley Davidson Festival in Sturgis, South Dakota where he shared the stage with Lynyrd Skynyrd, Steppenwolf (Steppenwolf (band)), Nazareth and Blue Oyster Cult. His policy of "I’ll play anywhere once" has landed Lyons gigs on a tropical island in the Great Barrier reef of Australia, an Irish Pub in Beijing and the Hanford Nuclear Waste Dump (Hanford Site) in his home state of Washington. Nazareth was a small village unmentioned in any writings before this time, though there is some archeological evidence that a village existed in the area at the time of Jesus.Matthew gives no specific reason for why the family moved to this town, and Luke has them originally from there. The town was near the Via Maris , the main road connecting to Egypt, and the route the family would have most likely been travelling. Harrington, Daniel J. ''The Gospel of Matthew.'' Liturgical Press, 1991 pg. 45 Clarke notes that Nazareth was just to the north of the larger centre of Sepphoris that had been largely destroyed in the violence after the death of Herod the Great. At this time it was being rebuilt by Herod Antipas, and Clarke speculates that this could have been a source of employment for a carpenter such as Joseph. Clarke, Howard W. ''The Gospel of Matthew and its Readers: A Historical Introduction to the First Gospel.'' Bloomington: Indiana University Press, 2003. Jesus reenters the narrative for the first time since Matthew 2:23. In that verse he moves to Nazareth in Galilee. In this verse he returns from that region to Judea.

to Luke, an order of Caesar Augustus forced Mary and Joseph to leave their homes in Nazareth and come to the home of Joseph's ancestors, the house of David, for a census (Census of Quirinius). After Jesus' birth the couple had to use a manger for a crib because there was no room for them in the town's inn or family guest room.
