Notes:
Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Deut., xiv: 21.)--'And if there be any blemish therein, as if it be lame, or blind, or have any ill blemish, thou shalt not sacrifice it unto the Lord thy God.' All the sacrifices and offerings made to God in the Old Testament history of the church were types of the sinless One who was to come, and who was to bear in his own body the sins of the whole world. 'For by one offering, He hath perfected forever them that are sanctified.'--Hebrews, x:14. 'But with the precious blood of Christ as of a lamb without blemish and without spot.'--I.Peter, i: 19. 'That he might present it to himself a glorious church not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that it should be holy, and without blemish.'--Eph., v: 27. We give as an illustration of this portion of Scripture a scene in Nazareth where the great offering without blemish, Jesus Christ, grew up." See 5368BAI/LVii94CAJS (Voyager # 361969)
