Notes:
Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Deut., xix.)--The 19th chapter of Deuteronomy speaks of the laws concerning the cities of refuge. We give as an illustration of this portion of Deuteronomy the side altar of the Latin church at Nazareth. This church stands in the city of our Savior's boyhood, and is said to be built on the site of the house in which with His parents He lived. The cities of refuge in a very important sense were all types of Christ. Christ is the great city of refuge, and all are safe who flee from their sins to Him, and none are safe who are away from Him. The penitent one who has fled to Christ for refuge may sing: 'Should storms of seven-fold thunder roll, And shake the globe from pole to pole, No flaming bolt shall daunt my face, For Jesus is my hiding place.'" "Franklin Co Eng-Chi" is printed at the bottom of the photograph. See 5258BAI/LVi176CAJS (Voyager # 360109)
