- In the plain of Esdraelon, and the scene in the OT of Barak's assembly of his forces (Judg. 4:6) and of the death of Gideon's brothers (Judg. 8:18). Although not mentioned in the NT, it has traditionally, but improbably, been regarded as the site of Jesus' transfiguration (Mark 9:2). Tabor was not a ‘high mountain’; Mount Hermon, near Caesarea Philippi, seems the more probable location.
