1 photograph : b&w ; 25.3 x 17.6 cm ( 10 x 7 in).
Notes:
Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Matthew, xii:9-10.)--The site of the ancient city here photographed is covered with a rank growth of bushes and weeds. But lying half covered by the rank vegetation are pillars wrought out of the indigenous limestone, and decorated with beautiful Corinthian capitals, hewn architraves, elaborate friezes and pedestals. In the picture is presented a view of a part of the wall of the ancient synagogue. It was in Capernaum that Christ performed more of His miracles than in any other city, and in this synagogue it is supposed He performed the miracle of healing the man with the withered hand, referred to in Matthew, xii: 9-10. Here, also, Christ is supposed to have appeared to the disciples after He arose from the dead." See 5420BAI/LVii146CAJS (Voyager # 362433)
