Notes:
Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Isaiah, xlii: 1-4.)--'Behold my servant, whom I uphold; mine elect, in whom my soul delighteth; I have put my Spirit upon him: he shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles. He shall not cry, nor lift up, nor cause his voice to be heard in the street. A bruised reed shall he not break, and the smoking flax shall he not quench: he shall bring forth judgment unto truth. He shall not fail nor be discouraged, till he have set judgment in the earth, and the isles shall wait for his law.' Joseph's workshop is pointed out in Nazareth as standing upon the site of the ancient shop where our Savior labored as a carpenter. Through the Christian ages Nazareth has been growing in interest and importance. Antoninus Martyr visited Nazareth in A.D. 600, and speaks of the reverence with which the place was held at that time, and compares it to a paradise on earth."
