Object Details:
1 photograph : b&w ; 25.4 x 18.2 cm ( 10 x 7.125 in).
Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Luke iv:5.)--The second Temptation of Christ is represented in the Scriptures as taking place upon a high mountain, from which the devil could call the attention of our Savior to all the kingdoms of the world. This mountain, upon which occurred the second Temptation, is over against Jericho and looking directly over the Plain of Sodom and Gomorrah, and away to the mountains of Moab. At the time of the Temptation this whole Plain of the Jordan, between the Dead Sea below and twenty miles above, was cultivated and kept like a garden. Herod had lived here in great style and luxury. Cleopatra had come to this place for revelry, and it was doubtless one of the most beautiful and attractive places in the world. The Mount of Temptation is a lonely height." Copyright year and photographer's name are printed at the bottom of the photograph, along with "Franklin Co Eng-Chi." See 5223BAI/LVi141CAJS (Voyager # 359455)
