Object Details:
1 photograph : b&w ; 25.5 x 17.9 cm ( 10 x 7 in).
Notes:
Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Ezekiel, xxxiv: 23-25.)--'And I will set up one Shepherd over them, and he shall feed them, even my servant David; he shall feed them, and he shall be their shepherd. And I the Lord will be their God, and my servant David a prince among them; I the Lord have spoken it. And I will make them a covenant of peace, and will cause the evil beasts to cease out of the land; and they shall dwell safely in the wilderness, and sleep in the woods.' We give a picture of the Academy of Science in Athens, which is a fitting illustration of this prophecy of Ezekiel. The kingdom of Jesus Christ the son of David wherever established has promoted law and order and science and all the things which go to make up enlightened civilization. All nations where Christ has been accepted have enjoyed the showers of blessing of which Ezekiel speaks." Copyright year and photographer's name are printed at the bottom of the photograph
