Mount Tabor (Hebrew: הר תבור‬, Modern Har Tavor, Tiberian Har Tāḇôr; Arabic: جبل الطور‎, Jabal aṭ-Ṭūr; Latin: Itabyrium, Koine Greek: Όρος Θαβώρ, "Oros Thabor") is located in Lower Galilee, Israel, at the eastern end of the Jezreel Valley, 11 miles (18 km) west of the Sea of Galilee. It was the site of the biblical battle of Mount Tabor in the time of judge Deborah, between the Israelite army under the leadership of Barak and the army of the Canaanite king of Hazor, Jabin, commanded by Sisera, in the mid-12th century BCE. It is believed by many Christians to be the site of the Transfiguration of Jesus,[1] although Mount Hermon at Caesarea Philippi has also been proposed. Mount Tabor is known as Itabyrium in the Graeco-Roman world, and the Mount of Transfiguration in some Christian contexts.
