Object Details:
1 photograph : b&w ; 25.5 x 18 cm ( 10 x 7 in).
Notes:
Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Exodus, xx.)--The twentieth chapter of Exodus contains the ten commandments. We put this picture of the English Orphanage at Nazareth to illustrate it, because in Christ the whole law was summed up and fulfilled, and the beautiful view we give above was taken in the city where Christ grew up. The English Orphanage at Nazareth is a school under the direction of the Established Church of England. It is conducted by consecrated women, and has been the means of accomplishing a great deal of good for the poor orphans in Palestine. No institution could more fittingly stand as a concrete illustration of what Christ has done and is doing for childhood. This school is an embodiment of His own love as expressed through the words: 'Suffer little children to come unto me, and forbid them not, for of such is the kingdom of Heaven." Copyright year and photographer's name are printed at the bottom of the photograph, along with "Franklin Co Eng-Chi." "H" is printed beneath the text. See 5179BAI/LVi97CAJS (Voyager # 358875)
