1 photograph : b&w ; 25.5 x 18 cm ( 10 x 7.125 in).
Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Matt., xi:22.)--It must have grieved the Son of God beyond the power of expression when his own people and the cities of his own Galilee did not repent and turn away from their sins while daily witnessing his mighty works. Speaking of Bethsaida and Chorazin, He said: 'It shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the day of judgment than for you.' It is a curious thing that even to-day there are some remains of Tyre and Sidon, but not a single vestige of Chorazin and Bethsaida. Tyre was the great city of the Phoenicians. It was once the capital and center of the world's commerce. Tyre was leveled to the ground by Alexander the Great, but was afterward rebuilt. It is no longer a place of commercial importance. It was here that Jesus wrought a cure, and said to the woman: 'O woman! Great is thy faith.'" See 5456BAI/LVii183CAJS (Voyager # 362841)
