Notes:
Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Exodus, xxviii:36.)--'And thou shalt make a plate of pure gold, and grave upon it, like the engravings of a signet, Holiness to the Lord.' All the rites and ceremonies, and types and shadows, and burnt offerings and sin offerings and peace offerings that were used by divine appointment among the children of Israel tended to teach two great truths: first, that the Lord God is holy, and second, that he demands holiness on the part of his people. For two thousand years God was preparing the children of Israel through the appointments of the Jewish church for the coming of His own Son. The Church of the Annunciation in Nazareth stands as a memorial of what the angel said to Mary: 'The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee, and therefore, also, that Holy Thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.' This church is situated within the walls of the Latin monastery in Nazareth and is generally the first place visited by travelers to this city of our Savior's boyhood." "H2" is printed on the page beneath the text. See 5183BAI/LVi101CAJS (Voyager # 358932)
