Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Zechariah, xiii:6.)--'And one shall say unto Him, What are these wounds in thine hands? Then He shall answer, Those with which I was wounded in the house of my friends.' Tradition makes the rock which we see in the picture the place where Christ and His disciples often ate together. This rock is in the interior of the Church of the Holy Table in Nazareth. It is about three feet high, ten feet long, and three feet wide. We are standing in the front of the church and are looking toward the altar. This is a small church, but very beautifully kept. This chapel was bult in 1861, and belongs to the Latin Christians."
