Bain, Robert E. M
Object Details:
1 photograph : b&w ; 25.3 x 18.1 cm ( 10 x 7.125 in).
Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Luke, viii:2.)--North of Tiberias, on the west coast of the Sea of Galilee, a single day's journey takes the traveler through the sites of Magdala, Nazareth and Capernaum--scenes of sacred interest in connection with the New Testament. This is nothing to-day but a little fishing village, but it has continued to bear the name it was known by in the days of our Savior, while many of the great cities of the world have disappeared, and thus this insignificant little town has continued to bear witness and to keep alive the memory of Mary Magdalene. Here it was that the grace of the Redeemer was shown in transforming into a sweet and lovely saint a woman whose name perhaps would never have been known but for the fact that she came into the presence of the Son of God and the Son of Man."
