Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Luke, ii: 44.)--Beeroth is about a day's journey from Jerusalem as people used to travel. It is interesting to-day because it is supposed to be the place where Mary and Joseph spent the night after the first day's journey from Jerusalem upon their return to Nazareth, in our Savior's twelfth year. It is well known that at the end of the day's journey they sought Him among the people, and failed to find Him, making it necessary that they return the next day to Jerusalem to seek for Him. This is one of the cities of the Gibeonites. There are the ruins of an ancient church here, built by the Knights Templar who held Beeroth during the reign of the Latin kings. It was at Beeroth that Jotham concealed himself for fear of his brother, Abimelech." See 5390BAI/LVii116CAJS (Voyager # 362213)
