6 Great Mountains In Bible And The Major Events Which Took Place In each Mountain

1) Mountain Ararat.

It is where Noah's ark rested after the flood while he and his family waited for the waters to recede. Genesis 8:4 says, and on the seventeenth day of the seventh month the ark came to rest on the mountains of Ararat.

2) Mountain Gerizim.

This mountain is where the Israelites proclaimed the blessings before entering the promised land. On the same mountain, Jotham delivered the parable of the trees. In the New Testament, mountain Gerizim is not mentioned by name, but it is implied in the conversation between Jesus and the Samaritan woman.

3) Mountain Carmel.

Where Elijah challenged the prophets of Baal. 1 Kings 18:20-21 So Ahab sent word throughout all Israel and assembled the prophets on mountain Carmel. Elijah went before the people and said, "How long will you waver between two opinions? If the Lord is God, follow him; but if Baal is God, follow him" but the people said nothing.

4) Mountain Moriah.

This is the place Abraham offered Isaac. Genesis 22:2, "Then God said, "Take your son, your only son, Isaac, whom you love, and go to the region of Moriah. Sacrifice him and there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains I will tell you about."

5) Mountain Sinai.

Most of the people are familiar with mountain Sinai. This is the mountain where Moses received the Ten Commandments.

6) Mountain Tabor.

This was the mountain for transfiguration. The transfiguration was when Jesus' glory was revealed to those with him. It is also representative of Heaven meeting Earth. Jesus and his apostles, Peter, James, and John, go to a mountain called mountain of transfiguration to pray. On the mountaintop, Jesus begins to shine with bright rays of light. Then the Old Testament figures Moses and Elijah appear next to him and he speaks with them. Both figures had eschatological roles: they summarize the law and the prophets, respectively. Jesus is then called "Son" by a voice assumed to be God the Father, ad in the Baptism of Jesus.
