This is the city of Galilee in which Jesus Christ spent his childhood and much of his life; hence he was often called Jesus of Nazareth, or the Nazarene. In the Rose Croix, Nazareth is a significant word; Jesus is designated as "Our Master of Nazareth" to designate the origin and nature of the dogmas of the Order. — ( Matthew 2:23 - Luke 1:16.27 - Matthew 21:11 )
