Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Numbers, xxxv: 9-34.)--We give here a picture taken from a scene in Nazareth, the city of our Savior, to illustrate the cities of refuge referred to in the thirty-fifth chapter of Numbers. The cities of refuge may hardly be considered a type, but they constitute an illustration of Christ as the sinner's refuge. The cities of refuge were near every portion of the land, and Christ as the Son of God is near us all. Within the cities of refuge there was no condemnation, and so there is no safety for sinners except in Christ. To leave the city of refuge was to meet destruction, so we cannot go away from Christ but at the peril of our hopes. These camels were being taken from Syria into Egypt."
