Notes:
Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Jememiah, xxxiii:17,18.)--'For thus saith the Lord, David shall never want a man to sit upon the throne of the house of Israel; Neither shall the priests of the Levites want a man before me to offer burnt offerings, and to kindle meat offerings, and to do sacrifice continually.' Reference is made to these verses by St. Paul in Romans, xii:1, and Romans, xv:16, and by Peter in I. Peter, ii:5, and by St. John in Revelations, i:6. Jesus Christ was the man who was to set forever upon the throne of the house of Israel, and the ministers were to be the priests who were to offer burnt offerings and to kindle meat offerings, and to do sacrifice continually. We give a picture of the house of Ananias in Damascus, said to stand upon the site of the house of Ananias, related to St. Paul at the time of his conversion. St. Paul was the leader of the living, everlasting Christain [sic] priesthood."
