1 photograph : b&w ; 25.4 x 18.3 cm ( 10 x 7.125 in).
Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Luke, ix:39.)-This scene in a Bedouin village, near Cæsarea Philippi, shows us people who are very much like those living in the same region in the time of our Savior. These people are often to-day diseased with afflictions they do not understand and that they have no means of relieving. They are so ignorant as to suppose that any medicine is sufficient to alleviate and cure them of their diseases. Refusing the spiritual help that our Lord brought to them, they have continued through all the centuries to suffer from the bodily ailments that flesh is heir to. Those that accept the spiritual offers of Jesus Christ have light and wisdom given to them, by which they are able to discern the herbs and minerals which are necessary to relieve their afflicted bodies."
