Notes:
Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Luke, ix:10.)--Bethsaida was one of the cities most frequently visited by our Savior. It was very near Capernaum, which is called his own city. Always, in going from Capernaum to Jerusalem, or any point west of the Sea of Galilee, He would pass through Bethsaida. It is said 'He preached in their synagogues throughout all Galilee and cast out devils.' We know from the woe Christ pronounced on Bethsaida that it was one of the cities which had witnessed most of His wonderful works. Nothing remains of the once proud and wealthy city but a few broken walls. It is all grown up in prickly pears and thorns, making such a thick undergrowth that it is almost impossible to pass over the site at all."
