Has God ever jumped off a cliff?

The devil led him to Jerusalem and had him stand on the highest point of the temple. “If you are the Son of God,” he said, “throw yourself down from here. For it is written:
“ ‘He will command his angels concerning you
to guard you carefully;
they will lift you up in their hands,
so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.’”
Jesus answered, “It says: ‘Do not put the Lord your God to the test.’” Luke 4:9-12

All the people in the synagogue were furious when they heard this. They got up, drove him out of the town, and took him to the brow of the hill on which the town was built, in order to throw him down the cliff. But he walked right through the crowd and went on his way. Luke 4:28-30

Actually God hasn’t, but Jesus found himself on the edge of two cliffs in Luke chapter 4. Once Satan took him to a mountain and tempted him to jump. Jesus refused to let Satan boss him around.

The second time occurred when the townspeople were upset that Jesus compared himself to God, so they wanted to toss him off the edge of a cliff. He walked away.

God isn’t afraid of heights.
