Question from Barry Lindsay on 01-11-2013:

Hello there

What makes a mountain holy?

How many holy mountains are there?

Where are the holy mountains located?

Thanks for your time and answers

I appreciate it

Answer by Richard Geraghty on 02-17-2013:

Dear Barry,

All mountains may be said to be holy because their grandeur reflects the power of God. Mountains like Mt. Sinae are especially holy because there God gave Moses the Ten Commandments.
