Creator:
Bain, Robert E. M
Object Details:
1 photograph : b&w ; 25.4 x 18 cm ( 10 x 7 in).
Notes:
Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Matt., iv:25.)--'And there followed him great multitudes of people, from Galilee and from Decapolis, and from Jerusalem and from Judea, and from beyond Jordan.' The verse quoted above gives us some insight into the wonderful influence of our Lord at this particular part of His careeer among the masses of Palestine. When He went up into the mountain to deliver the memorable sermon recorded in Matthew's Gospel, He was surrounded by people from all parts of the Holy Land. While on top of the mountain, where, according to tradition, He delivered the sermon, He was in sight of the place where Tiberias now stands. The party who secured the photographs which are found in this work were on top of the Mount of Beatitudes. We came down from the mountain and descended directly to Tiberias." Copyright year and photographer's name are printed at the bottom of the photograph, along with "Franklin Co Eng-Chi."
