Notes:
Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Matt., xx:17.)--'And Jesus going up to Jerusalem took the twelve disciples apart in the way and said to them, Behold we go up to Jerusalem.' When Jesus uttered these words he was on His way to Jerusalem. He was beyond the Jordan and was to come through Jericho. The Fountain of the Apostles is between Jericho and Jerusalem, and about four miles from the Holy City. It is one of the places that we may be absolutely sure Jesus passed, for the road from Jerusalem to Jericho has not changed, and this fountain is so necessary as a place to get water in the Judean mountains that we may know that Christ not only passed here, but often rested and drank water here. Here the sheik furnishes a guide to conduct travelers to Jericho." See 5222BAI/LVi140CAJS (Voyager # 359454)
