Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Isaiah, lxi:1.)--The first sermon that Christ ever preached he preached in Nazareth, in the Synagogue. The Synagogue represented in the picture above is said to stand upon the exact site of the one in which Christ preached. This sermon was the only one Christ ever preached from a text, and that text he found in the 61st chapter of Isaiah: 'The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me; because the Lord hath annointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; He hath sent me to bind up the broken-hearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound. To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn.' It was after the delivery of this sermon that the acquaintances of our Savior led him to the brow of the hill to cast him down." "M2" is printed beneath the text.
