Object Details:
1 photograph : b&w ; 25.4 x 17.5 cm ( 10 x 7 in).
Notes:
Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Deut., ii:1-23.)--In the first part of the above chapter we have some account of international relationships. A careful study of the Old Testament Scriptures reveals the truth that while the Hebrews were God's peculiar people they were not His only people. All peoples were His, and every nation contemporary with the Jews was raised up for some specific purpose. Greece was far away over the Mediterranean Sea from Palestine, but with a history contemporaneous with that of the Hebrews after their entrance into the promised land under Joshua. The heroic period of Greek history is said to date from B.C. 1400 to B.C. 1200. We give in the above picture an illustration of an ancient, rugged, and ragged relic of the old wall built on the northern side of the Acropolis in Athens. It is interesting thus to view from the standpoint of Jewish history 1400 B.C. a scene in Greece." "Vol 2" and "I2" are printed beneath the text
