Notes:
Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Isaiah, vii:14.)--'Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.' Nazareth, where Mary, the mother of Jesus, lived, and where Christ was brought up, is dearer to the Christian heart than any other place on earth, except Jerusalem. It was a small and obscure village in the Old Testament times, and is not even mentioned by name, nor even by the historian Josephus. Yet, from the fact that Christ was brought up here, it receives an interest and a significance which have led pilgrims to visit it for the past 2000 years. According to ancient records, it never rose to distinction until the time of the crusades. It was then made the seat of a bishopric. It is now the chief town of this district. It is also larger and more prosperous than in any former period of its history." See 5174BAI/LVi92CAJS (Voyager # 358497)
